A Bit of History
Stained glass candy has a venerable history, starting with the boiled sugars of the 17th and 18th centuries. The 19th century brought hard candy drops and the early 20th century the beautiful stained glass candy– a typically homemade treat. Pick from sassafras, teaberry, cinnamon, various fruit flavors, or mix and match.
The stain glass candy evolved into the candy drops and the hard candies, a 20th century classic. And don’t forget the Lifesaver, sold in saloons to hide the smell of alcohol in the early 1900s.
