    Manufacturing humbug candy - GIF

    Manufacturing humbug candy. Not sure what these are called in the US; maybe sometimes "mints", or just generically referred to as "candy". Cool cutting machine; not so sure about the gloves.

    Seems like they call them Humbugs in Florida.
    Note that they are using very similar gloves in this American factory, but the cutting machine doesn't actually complete the cut, and unlike the original clip, it puts a twist cut in every piece. The twist cut is the correct cut for a Humbug and is often referred to as a Humbug Shape, but modern manufacturers tend to cut them straight across.
    I am not sure if the reason given for the name is correct or not.
