On its YouTube channel, Lofty Pursuits, a confectionary and ice cream shop in Florida makes sweeties the old-fashioned way: using Victorian era machines, including brass rollers.

In one video, viewers can see how it makes so-called "drop candy" using equipment from the late 1800s, which the store said it restored after decades of neglect.

Here s a quick rundown of how the drops are shaped.

The hot sugar is cooled for a bit on a table and folded so that it becomes an even temperature.

The sugar is then cut into manageable blocks and fed into the drop roller, which has pre-cut shapes.

According to the video, these kinds of machines and parts are very rare, due to dropping popularity right before World War II.
