I recently bought a a jar of rock candies and after one night, they have melted and all stuck together. How do I separate them again to eat them? (I tried freezing, it didn’t work!)

  • Would it be possible for you to provide a picture so we can get a measure of the level to which they are stuck together?

  • we need to know what type of container, can you remove the candy from the container, and what things you have tried so far (other than freezing).

If you can get them out of the jar, I would suggest a hammer.

Put them in a plastic bag and whack them with the hammer.

You might be able to use a knife (carefully) to pry them apart depending on much they are stuck together.

  • That is why I say "if you can get them out of the jar"

You can try filling jar with water (warm water is more effective) so they start dissolving and unstuck. Then they can be dried outside of the jar.
