A Bit of History
Sour balls originated as boiled sugars – a medicine, often using fruit, herbs, mints and other ingredients as a remedy. Later, they evolved into candies and a favorite of grandmothers who experienced sugar shortages in wars and economic turn-downs: the sugar-based candy became a symbol of well-being which they shared with grandchildren dispensed from sugar bowls and purses.
