The Candy Cane Tradition

Have you ever had a candy cane? It's a classic Christmas treat. The most common flavor is peppermint, but other flavors have been introduced over the years. People hang them in Christmas trees, use them as a crushed dessert topping or put them in hot chocolate.

Here is a brief history of candy canes from a famous brand of Candy Cane, Spangler:

The candy cane can be traced back to Germany in 1670. Legend has it that the choirmaster at the Cologne Cathedral handed out sugar sticks bent into the shape of a shepherd's staff to keep his young singers quiet during long services. While other elements of the season have evolved over the years, the simple candy cane remains a traditional ornament and treat reminding us of the shepherds' humble spirit on that first Christmas night.
