Swedish Peppermint Candy Canes

Hand-bent to look like a shepherd’s staff, the candy cane has a history reaching back hundreds of years. 

Popular belief is that white sugar sticks were transformed for children who would get restless during the long-winded holiday sermons. And before we had too many gifts under the tree, candy canes hung as gifts for children. 

They were truly a treat. Today’s wimpy striped sticks are just a peppermint candy stretched to resemble a cane. 

Our sturdy Swedish candy canes are nothing like the commercial ones you see at the Five and Dime. They’re plump, beautifully bent peppermint sticks, well-worth eating after you’ve enjoyed them hanging on the tree. 

These candy canes are approximately 5.5” tall, from the top of the curve to the bottom of the stem. The days of giving away candy-colored cars for Christmas are over. 

Why not give the next best thing, a candy cane! Don’t buy just one – buy a dozen!
