A Bit of History

The 1800s were an amazing time for sweets. Enslaved people made the sugar, abolitionists boycotted it, and Civil War soldiers ate it in their rations. While the first commercial candy appeared in 1806, sugar only shifted from being medicinal to being fun in the 1880s.  Now you can experience historical sweets in this exclusive collection and read the history of each on a specially made scroll.
