That old-timey Christmas candy your grandma has in a bowl this time of year is a lot like us: not always the most pleasant thing to have around during the holidays. But, you know what? That same candy (that may or may not be around legal drinking age) has a pretty interesting history. The origin of most of traditional candies is worth retelling, because this was back in the day before automation; things were hand-made, hand-spun and hand-packaged. They don’t make them like that anymore. Can you name these traditional holiday sweets from their meager beginnings? It’s a history lesson that may actually make these treats taste better. Okay, maybe not.
