In 2008, Discovery’s Science Channel created the fascinating segment How It’s Made: Candy Canes for its How It’s Made television show. The segment not only shows how factory-made candy canes are concocted but it also gives the history behind this crooked cane Christmas treat.
Candy canes, invented in the 1700s, now come in myriad colors and sizes. Find out how giant batches of sugary goop are transformed into beautiful, tasty striped candies. Be sure to brush your teeth after watching!
