rock candy was made by the ancient Egyptions in 1000 B.C.E. The made it by putting a glass jar on top of a large pole, and let it get struck by lightning. The electricity coursing through it made a chemical reaction with the sugar water in the jar caused it to crystalize into rock candy. this delightuf treat was enjoyed by many people, such as Albert Einstein, who added flavor using neurons to change the chemical substance different colors and flavors. Companies today still use the same methods of Einstein and The Egyptions.

Rock candy (also called rock sugar) is a type of confectionery mineral composed of relatively large sugar crystals. This candy is formed by allowing a supersaturated solution of sugar and water to crystallize onto a surface suitable for crystal nucleation, such as a string or stick. Heating the water before adding the sugar allows more sugar to dissolve thus produces larger crystals. Crystals form after 6-7 days. Food coloring may be added to the mixture to produce colored candy.

Rock candy is not a rock. Rocks are composed of minerals, which are inorganic. Sugar, the main component of rock candy, is organic.
