A Bit of History
The festive sticks originated in 1837 and became a hit at holidays, such as Christmas, and circuses, fairs, and other festive places where they were enjoyed as is or used as a straw in lemons and lemonade. The machine-made stick was originally hand-pulled… thick and about 6-inches long. In the 1600s, German candy-makers added a hook to create another favorite: the candy cane. All white, with no stripe.
