A helluva lot of sugar and a helluva lot of machinery. That’s what it takes to make candy canes and it’s very close to being a magical process, as taking something as large as what candy canes start at and shaping it down to the classic skinny hook is so very impressive.
Champagne is really hard to make. There are rules and regulations and specific grapes and soil requirements and is completely region specific and more that goes into each bottle that it’s impressive that even one bottle gets popped. In this video from the Science Channel, we get to see how Bollinger makes its champagne. It marries the old fashioned methods formed over hundreds of years of bubbly creation with impressive modern machinery. Delicious!
