The History of Candy Canes

Candy canes are a sweet treat and can be used for festive decorations. Let’s explore the history of this candy. Not much is known about the candy cane's history, but in the 1800’s, an old cookbook contained a recipe on candy sticks. They were long sticks that had white and red stripes and tasted like peppermint. Some researchers say the candy sticks were twisted into canes and were then able to be hung on Christmas trees. This style of candy sticks most likely became what we now know to be candy canes. So now when you decorate the tree, you can tell your friend about the story of candy canes.
