This Is How Candy Is Made -- And It's Just As Disturbing As Sausages

SEPTEMBER 4, 2016  —  By Corinne Sanders

I've never had much of a sweet tooth, but I definitely enjoy the occasional treat.

Sometimes, those delicious sweets are all you need to satisfy your cravings, but have you ever thought about what exactly goes into your favorite candy? If it's anything gummy, chances are that it includes gelatin.

At this point, you're probably wondering what's so wrong with that? Sure, it doesn't sound like something to worry about, but there's a dark truth about what confectionery factories do to produce the stuff. When you see the disturbing process for yourself in this film created by journalist Alina Kneepkens, you may rethink eating sweets altogether.

This is so disturbing.

Well that's enough to make me switch to salty snacks for the rest of eternity. Anybody craving some chewy candy? I didn't think so.
