The Candy Cane
I think these are kind of boring by themselves. I can't wait to see them mixed in with our entire collection.
Have you ever wondered where the candy cane came from? Candy canes were already in existence as a Christmas treat by the late 17th century. Popular tradition holds that the shape is meant to represent a shepherd's crook.
One final fact: the average 5-inch candy cane contains 50 calories and no fat or cholesterol. So eat up! Your breath will be nice and minty for that special meeting underneath the mistletoe.
