Mint - to many, this is the classic humbug, and often when a customer walks into the shop and simply ask for a bag of humbugs - mint is what they are after. However, even though the taste of this old favourite never fails to fulfil, it is actually the boiled sugar shaped to a cilindar, with a twist and a pinch that fits the "humbug" definition.
Handmade in just over 4 kilo batches, hand pulled and then rolled on a marble slab in the Star Rock Shop kitchen. Once rolled to the right thickness the humbug shape is formed by the long rolled rods being hand turned through a very old humbug machine. The humbugs are left to cool, then gently tossed to break off any jagged edges and coated in sugar powder to prevent sticking.
The humbugs are bagged in thin plastic bags, as no preservatives or artificial flavours are in the recipe and they can be prone to sticking if not kept cool.
Due to the weekly handmade batching of all our rock products - every batch may vary in natural golden colour and thickness.
All handmade Star Rock products should be treated as fresh goods with a short shelf life, and kept in a cool dry position. Once opened, keep rock in a cool place, out of sunlight, a jar or the fridge in summer and eat within 7 days of opening.
