Beautiful, sweet – with various flavors – and a hint of chocolate. These are the candies grandparents have shared for generations. Perfect for the holidays and any day. Can only be made in cool weather, so don't miss out. Six ounces.
A Bit of History
Straws were one of the line-up of candies grandmothers shared during the holidays as gifts, in candy bowls, and in packets in their burses. These candies were more than fun – they were symbols of affluence and well-being after sugar-shortages due to the two World Wars and the Great Depression. The candy for the holidays – such as the chocolate-filled straws – were especially decorative. Generations ever since have followed this tradition and hopefully will do so far into the future.
