Twizzlers and gummy worms are decidedly delicious, and a ubiquitous part of life, but we don’t often think about how they’re actually made. So we’re easing back into the week by taking in a tour of the manufacturing process from start to finish.

These candies are deceptively simple in their designs—that simplicity belies precision and creative solutions to create and maintain their shapes. From extruders and water-lubricated precision blades to disappearing cornstarch molds, a lot goes into the process of automating the production of millions of chewy candies per day. But once those processes are perfected and set in motion, it’s fascinating to watch them in action.

IHOP Restaurants has rebranded, and will now be known IHOb, with the ‘b’ standing for burgers, the company has said.

The news of the rebrand was revealed next week, with speculation about what the ‘b’ may stand for, with guesses ranging from brunch to bananas.

In a release, IHOb said that change in fact celebrates the debut of the brand’s new Ultimate Steakburgers, a line-up of seven mouth-watering, all-natural burgers.

To show the brand is as serious about burgers as it is about its world-famous pancakes, it’s flipped the “p” to a “b” in their iconic name for the time being, including its Twitter handle.

A flagship IHOb restaurant in Hollywood, CA, has also been completely “re-burgered”, and will offer all of the company’s new range of burgers, with its Ultimate Stakeburgers to come in seven varieties.  

“Burgers are a quintessential, American menu item so it makes perfect sense that IHOP, one of the most iconic, all-American comfort-food brands in the world, would go over the top to create a delicious line-up of quality burgers that hit the spot any time of day,” said Chef Nevielle Panthaky, Head of Culinary at IHOb.

“Our new Ultimate Steakburgers are made with all-natural, 100% USDA Choice, Black Angus ground beef that is smashed on the grill to create a sear that locks in the juices and flavour.
