Why don't more people place Cut Rock Hard Candy around their homes at Christmas time? After all, it's one of the oldest old-fashioned holiday candies out there. So many of us sadly grew up thinking this was "fancy" candy, and explaining away why we shouldn't be able to enjoy it. (Now that I think about it, it was probably just my parents' favorite candy!) 

Send your kids (over the age of about 12) on a field trip for their tastebuds during winter break this year with this reliably awesome nostalgic candy. With its tantalizingly artistic cross-sectional fruit details, Cut Rock Hard Candy is as much a cultural experience as it is a tasty treat! And with its relatively small pieces, portion control is simple! Of course, with its about-a-million flavors, there's a lot of picking, choosing, and compromising to be done.

There are about 200 pieces of hard candy in each pound, and ours come carefully packed in a 5-pound bulk bag.

Cut Rock Hard Candy
This is the best candy ever! I got hooked on it at Christmas and couldn't find it in the stores any longer. Now I know where I can get it all year long!

Great candy
As long as I can remember hard candy has been a staple at Christmas time. It's difficult to find in stores. I did an Internet search, and was thrilled to find cut rock candy. Not only tastes great, but is also beautiful

Favorite Memory
When I was in elementary school, we would make wreaths out of this candy to hang on our tree! I wasn't even sure you could find this candy anymore.

We would save metal pot pie tins, then lay the candies down around the outside edge of the tin. Mom would help me put the tins on a cookie sheet and bake them in a 250 degree oven until the candy melted together. As soon as they melted we would take them out of the oven to cool. I always took a toothpick and made a hole in the "top" of the wreath for the string.

Once they were completely cooled we would pop them out of the tin, put a string in the hole and hang them on the tree or give them as gifts! I always loved making them and how the picture on the candy would stay pretty much the same even when it melted.

"Old Time" Treats
Wow! I remember these hard rock candy treats from my childhood days. And that was over 60 years ago. These taste exactly the same as then. Mom would always buy these and would have to put them out a few at a time in a bowl to keep us kids from eating them all up. The ones that I have found in the store in recent times just don't have the same delicious taste as these.

fond memories of " old world traditions "
When I was growing up, visits to my grandparents house during the Christmas
season always meant finding a house that had every room decorated with the “ old
world charm”. There was a large Christmas tree and old ornaments and holiday wooden figures
everywhere. One of my fondest memories was the small dishes placed on all the tables
filled with the cut rock hard candy. My grandmother always said they had it every
year when she was growing up. I try and preserve the old family traditions, and up
until I found this item, the candy we purchased in the stores was never quite the same.
It lacked the flavor and appearance that I remembered. This mixture has it !!
It brings back all the fond memories with each piece.

Q: Is this candy fruit flavored or spice?

A: Five pounds is a lot of candy, but we are using it all up making ornaments as suggested by another commenter. We made some wreathes in pot pie tins, but also used buttered cookie cutters. We put them on parchment paper on a cookie sheet, then baked 11 minutes at 300 degrees. The trickiest part is getting the hole when the candy is hard enough but not too hard. It’s fun to make these with friends, and everyone loves receiving one.
