How are Candy Canes made

Candy Canes have been around for a long time, since potentially as early as the 1700s, forlornly sucked sticks of boiled sugar candies with a hook like stick, to look like the shepherds' crooks from the Christmas story. The Candy Canes come in myriad colours and sizes. Find out how giant batches of sugary gloop are transformed into beautiful, tasty striped candies. Water, sugar, and corn starch are boiled until they're a thick yellow syrup. Peppermint flavouring is added, and this disgusting, yellowy mush is kneaded until it's consistent. It's then stretched and restretched around a central pole. This forces air bubbles into the candy cane material, bubbles that most of us have seen when they've broken a cane in half.
