After Seeing How Candy Is Made, You’ll Stop Eating It Immediately!
This video shows us exactly how candy is made, and trust us, it’s not pretty. The dark side of the sweets producing industry is something that corporations and the media are desperately trying to hide from the public eye. When we think about sweets, we have happy thoughts. It reminds us of our childhood and good memories come to mind whenever we eat some delicious jelly.
However, there’s something you should know about candy, and that something is the process of making these delicious treats. There’s a reason why vegans and vegetarians don’t eat jelly and you’re going to find out what it is.
Belgian filmmaker Alina Kneepkens created short films detailing the process of how candy (and other tasty products) is made and without adding any comments of her own, the images in her videos speak loud and clearly for themselves.
By now we all know that almost every type of food has added sugar to trick our brain into becoming addicted to the product. Also, we know that food has a lot of chemicals and artificial colorants in order to make products more appealing. What we don’t know is how gelatin, for example, is made. At least not everybody knows that gelatin is made from animals and this is why some people choose not to eat sweets that have gelatin in them.
Jelly and other sweets have gelatin. Gelatin comes from melted down raw animal remains, like pig skin and cartilage which give it that unique distinguished texture we all got hooked on.

‘Rabbits with plums’
“‘Rabbit with plums’ is one of those typically national dishes. A cozy meal many Belgians know through their grandmothers. The scale on which rabbits are slaughtered for it is shocking. Not so cozy. The rabbits in this slaughterhouse are being lightly electrocuted before their throats are cut to die.” writes Alina on her website.
“‘Black Pudding’ is, among other things, made of pig blood. Pigs are gassed and numbed before their blood is sucked out with a hollow knife for them to die. This film was a ‘co-production’ with fellow director Mario Mertens“, Alina described this other video she created.
