Candy Cane Fun Facts
- The first candy cane was made over 350 years ago. The first historical reference in America to the candy cane dates back to 1847. A German immigrant from Wooster, Ohio decorated his Christmas tree with candy canes. National candy cane day is celebrates on December 26 in the United States.
- The classic peppermint flavor of the candy cane has been around for 600 years, but the original candy canes were just straight sticks, like a real walking cane. In 1640, a German choirmaster decided to change things up by curving the shape to look more like a shepherd’s staff, resulting in the candy cane shape we all know and love today.
- The choirmaster asked a local candy-maker for some sweet sticks so that he could justify giving candy to children during worship. He had the candy maker add a curve to the top of each stick, which would help children remember the shepherds who paid visit to infant Jesus.
- Candy canes are sometimes as a topping for foods such as ice cream or as an additive to drinks such as hot chocolate. They are hung as decorations on Christmas Trees. Nearly 2 billion candy canes will be sold in the four weeks before Christmas and Hanukkah.
- Geneva pastry chef Alain Roby broke his third Guinness World Record by creating the world’s longest candy cane in 2012, measuring at 51 feet long. The previous record was 38 feet. Roby also holds world records for the tallest cooked sugar building and tallest chocolate sculpture.
