I am giving this recipe 3 stars but not for flavor, but because the recipe fails to provide you with an important step: I followed this recipe twice following the cooking times provided. My candy would not firm up after 24hours at room temp. On the 3rd attempt I used a candy thermometer and cooked the candy to a temp of 230 degrees and had success otherwise it without this step your candy does not firm up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is a very easy tastey recipe! this is a very easy tastey recipe! I plan on making it for Christmas gifts. I also tried it with 8 drops of red food coloring and Wild Cherry flavoring. My mom loves this kinf of candy, but it can be too expensive or too gritty.I thought, I can do this myself and we won;t have to buy that stuff anymore! LOL It is great! I am going to try it with Pineapple next!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made a double batch- one batch orandge and the other wild cherry. I made a double batch- one batch orandge and the other wild cherry. My only problem was that I made them at the same time and while I was finishing the cherry, the orange overcooked, making them really chewy, but tasty! We loved the cherry, though. The kids are already asking me to make them again and we haven't even ate half of the candies!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Somehow I read put the candy in refrigerator overnight, so I did. Somehow I read put the candy in refrigerator overnight, so I did. The next evening it wouldn't come out of the pan without running hot water over it. Then I needed all my strength to cut it. But it is tasty. I'm hoping that after it has sat at room temperature for a while, I will be able to chew it instead of sucking it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love these candies, great taste and easy to make. I love these candies, great taste and easy to make. However, I don't seem to have the knack for setting the jell. Out of three tries one was perfect, one was very thick but never quite set and the other only partially set after 24 hours.
