How is Honeycomb Made?
We make our own lovely honeycomb here in our factory. Although the recipe is quite simple, the skill is to create a consistent product. Therefore, maintaining the correct temperature is crucial to its success. Essentially, the ingredients are castor sugar, golden syrup, and bicarbonate of soda. It’s the addition of the bi-carb during heating that helps create bubbles and a honeycomb-like structure. While the mixture is still hot, we roll it out to cool on trays. Once it’s cooled, we can then break it up and add it to a tumbling machine that creates the consistent shapes ready for coating. Finally, it’s off the coating area to be drenched in a variety of delicious Carob coatings. Our Honeycomb range of products includes honeycomb pieces, honeycomb chip, honeycomb powder and honeycomb syrup. Customers can buy honeycomb direct from our onsite shop or via our website.
