Does anyone know where to get the candy plugs for installing into queen cages?  I don't want suggestions for marshmallows or anything like that.  I am looking for the actual plugs that a queen supplier would use.  I've checked Mannlake, Brushy Mountain, and Dadant already.  No luck.  Thanks.

Do you mean the candy plug or the cork plug?

I've never done it, but aren't candy plugs just homemade from sugar?

The candy plug.

I'm sure they can be made easily enough at home.  Even a recipe would be fine for what I need.  I just don't see a major queen supplier hand making this stuff.  So, a recipe would be fine, a supplier would be great too, for future reference.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
