You have all seen them, you can’t miss them this time of year. They are eaten, gifted and used as decorations. They have different colors, sizes and shapes. They smell delicious and are either eaten quickly or savoured slowly over time to maximize the enjoyment. It’s the Candy Cane, an undeniable symbol of Christmas and the holiday period.
Candy canes are a type of confectionery that are traditionally shaped like a cane or staff with a curved top. They are typically made of hard white candy that is peppermint-flavored, although other flavors such as strawberry and chocolate also exist. Candy canes are often associated with Christmas and are often hung on Christmas trees or given as gifts during the holiday season. They are also sometimes used as decorations for other winter holiday celebrations, such as Hanukkah.
