Greg from Lofty Pursuits used his antique candy drop roller to create Madness, his mixture of candies that all have the same red color but have many different flavors. He also demonstrates the Stroop effect.
Flavors have included: Apple, Blackberry, Peach, Lemon, Watermelon, Bubblegum, Sweet Butter, Sour Strawberry, Pineapple, Vanilla Chili pepper. However, caveat emptor:
These flavors will change over time, possibly before your order is shipped. Because these are all the same color, we are mixing them well, but there might be a flavor or two that misses your bag. We don't even know for sure what is going in there. :)
Bonus video: the Stroop effect done in beautiful calligraphy:
