What kind of candy is a jawbreaker?

Large psychedelic jawbreakers are firm white candy covered with colorful bursts. Jawbreakers are ideal for adorning a candy bar for birthdays, baby showers, or any other special event. These splatter-style sweet jewels are sure to please Jackson Pollock.

Also called bubble gum rocks, jawbreakers were first made in the 1930s by the Wrigley Company. They are based on the Cuban bolo, which dates back to at least 1872 when it was described in a Spanish-language newspaper in Cuba. The original bolos were flat pieces of chewy sugar candy with oil-based paint used as decorations. In 1919, the Frito-Lay company began making jawbreakers under the name Pop Rocks. Although they are similar in shape and size, these modern versions use nitrocellulose paint instead of oils.

Jawbreakers are made by pouring molten sugar into molds coated with corn syrup then cooling them down quickly so the candy will be hard when pulled off the mold. Once cooled, the candy pieces are dipped into colored liquid paints that are brushed onto the candy with long handles. The paintings usually include images of animals, people, and popular characters from movies, music videos, and television shows. Each piece is then dried and packaged for sale.

The candy's popularity can be attributed to its unique flavor and texture.

The most popular ones include Wrigley's, Skoal, and Rock Candy Rockets.
