This wasn't at all what I expected. It actually ended up in the trash. The egg whites curdled when the sugar mix was added and it just was terrible.

This is not sea foam, and this is why I rated it 1 star. It is divinity. It is ok as a divinity recipe, BUT if you are looking for SEA FOAM, look at a different one.

The recipe was very easy to make for me but the taste is not what I remember as a child. You know the one where it melts in your mouth, but this one tastes good. I aslo add chocolate to mine.

I tried this recipe and thought it was turning out well, but after I mixed all the ingredients, the candy never hardened, it was just really wet. Maybe I didn't mix it long enough. I will try this again, as I have been looking for a good seafoam recipe.

I gave this recipe only one star because it turned out like white chewy blobs that resembled poorly made taffey. Lol I was too afraid to even taste it! But... This is my first time making any kind of candy like this so it could have been me. I read that there is a special knack to making candy like this and if you make one small mistake it won't work out. I will try this again (maybe not this recipe) because I'm determined to get it right! I'll keep everyone posted!
