When we pick up our favorite snacks from the store, we rarely ponder all the work that went into making them. It’s actuallyfascinating to see how it all works behind the scenes, and in this video you’ll watch how a holiday staple comes to be: the candy cane.
Did you know? Each year, about 1.76 billion candy canes are made and 90% of candy canes are sold between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
According to MadeHow and as you’ll see in the video below, candy canes are made using a batch process, which involves mixing and cooking the candy base, forming the stick shapes, and putting it in the appropriate packaging. First introduced in the seventeenth century, candy canes have been a favorite holiday candy for hundreds of years. Today, the candy cane makes up a huge amount of the Christmas candy market.
In the United States, we even celebrate National Candy Cane day on December 26, so don’t eat them all on Christmas!
