Molasses taffy pops, vanilla taffy pops, and caramel taffy pops from Wockenfuss combine rich chocolate with our delicious taffies. These luxurious lollipops are a treat for grownups and kids alike, but what goes into making them? In this blog, we explore everything there is to know about molasses taffy pops.
All About Molasses
Molasses taffy pops start with a slab of our molasses taffy, but what is molasses? Also known as black treacle, molasses is a byproduct of sugar production. To refine sugar from sugarcane, manufacturers extract the juice from sugarcane and boil it. This juice is boiled repeatedly to cause the dissolved sugars to crystalize. These crystallized sugars are harvested, leaving behind molasses. The syrup decreases in sugar content as it is boiled, resulting in different grades of molasses with unique flavors, colors, and viscosities. Molasses is known for its sweetness and taste, and it’s used for everything from taffy and gingerbread to barbecue sauce and rum.
What Makes a Molasses Taffy Pop?
Our molasses taffy pops combine the deep, complex flavor of molasses with chewy taffy and rich dark chocolate. We start with a slab of our molasses taffy, which has been expertly mixed, cooked, and pulled to perfection. We cut the slabs into pop-sized pieces, add lollipop sticks for easy eating, and introduce our creamy dark chocolate. Each taffy pop is coated in a generous layer of chocolate, creating a luxurious and unique treat. Finally, each lollipop gets wrapped in a shiny, crinkly wrapper.
