How do I choose which candy to freeze dry?

Start with an easier question, which candy do you love?? Most candy with a high moisture content can be freeze-dried so choosing your favorites is a great way to experience the change in texture and flavor. Freeze-drying removes about 99% of the moisture from food, so if it doesn’t have much to begin with then it might not be a good choice.

Some high-moisture (great for freeze-drying) candy:

  • Peach Rings
  • Starbursts
  • Sour Worms
  • Cookie Dough

Some low-moisture (not so great for freeze-drying) candy:

  • Jelly Beans
  • Oreos
