Candy Canes- Did You Know?

By  | 

Candy canes began as plain white sticks of sugar candy. The current hooked shape of candy canes is often traced back to a German choirmaster who many say bent candy sticks to look like shepherd’s staffs. It was not until the 1900s that the red stripes were added to the canes. The candy canes began to be flavored with peppermint around the same time as the appearance of the red stripes.
