No I am not talking about those two guys, but what Mr. Cowboy is making. He is a lolly pop making fool. When he was in High School Rodeo, he made it to the Nationals in Colorado. His family didn't have a lot of money so they were not going to be able to make the trip. But Mr. Cowboy wanted to go. So, he and his mother started to make and sell suckers. They sold enough suckers to get to the Nationals, and they took 3000 suckers with them. Mr. Cowboy said he made about 1500 dollars at Nationals selling suckers. That was back in the day when they sold the suckers for .50 cents. Now, we just make them and give them away as Christmas gifts. Mr. Cowboy didn't want me to post pictures of his candy making methods, but he doesn't scare me. He doesn't have anything to worry about. No secrets can leak here, because I really have no idea how to make the suckers. So, his secrets are safe with me. He boils some water and some other stuff in a pot. Then he adds flavor and color and pours the finished product into his molds. He has a wonderful system. And he can make a ton of suckers in a short period of time. He makes half batches and makes plenty for us to giveaway. He makes all sorts of flavors. There is root beer, strawberry, pina coloda, cotton candy, bubble gum, hot cinnamon, sour cherry, sour green apple, french vanilla, banana cream, strawberry daiquiri, and lots more. That one is hot cinnamon. It's way to hot for me. It's like one of those atomic fire balls. But they are really pretty. His suckers come in many different shapes and sizes. I like the hearts. These are cotton candy suckers. The half brown and half aqua sucker is root beer/cotton candy with sour stuff in the middle. Normally Mr. Cowboy does the sour stuff with the hot cinnamon and I can't try them. But this time, it's all mine!! I love sour. It's a lot of fun to watch him make the suckers. And it's rewarding too, because we get to keep some of them. We really can only make the suckers in the fall and winter time because in the summer all the sugar and stuff melts. Good old hot sticky summers. So, there is a plus to the winter, we get suckers!!!
