In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, syrup, and vinegar; cook over medium heat, stirring until sugar melts. Cook without stirring until mixture is very brittle when placed in cold water, about 190° on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and add soda. Mixture will foam. Pour into a well-buttered pan. When hard, break into pieces. If desired, dip in melted dipping chocolate.
