Seafoam! Whenever I ask someone if they've ever had it, I get a pretty perplexed stare back. No, I don't mean something from the ocean, I mean candy. Seafoam is a pretty old timey candy, one you might find in candy shops on boardwalks and beach towns. Personally I think it has a horrible name. While I understand why it's called Seafoam (it's airy, light and has the texture of sea foam from the ocean) it certainly doesn't TASTE like it's from the ocean. And its color does not resemble that of anything blue or green. Maybe it should be called sponge candy. Although I wouldn't want to eat that either. Looks like seafoam was probably the best bet.
Seafoam is incredibly easy to make and somewhat impressive looking in texture. Normally I would not condone eating something made solely made of sugar and corn syrup, sometimes you have to live a little?!
1c organic sugar
1c light corn syrup
4 tsp baking soda
melted chocolate for dipping
Prepare a loaf pan, or any kind of pan with tall sides with parchment paper.
In a very tall pot, combine sugar and corn syrup and cook without stirring until 300 degrees on a candy thermometer. If you go above that then it will taste horrible, I have found this out from experience! Once it has reached 300 degrees remove it from the heat and stir in the baking soda with a wooden spoon. The mixture will immediately rise very fast. Pour it into your prepared pan and let cool and harden completely. Break into pieces and dip in chocolate, let cool on parchment paper.
