Have you ever stopped to think about the different types of candy out there, and where they come from? Candy has a long and fascinating history, with different types and flavors originating from different parts of the world. In this blog post, we will take a look at some of the different types of candy and their origins.
First, let's start with the classic hard candy. Hard candy, also known as boiled sweets, can be traced back to ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians and the Romans, who used honey and fruit juices to make sweets. Hard candy became more widespread during the Middle Ages, with ingredients such as sugar, corn syrup, and flavorings being used to create a variety of flavors. Today, hard candy is enjoyed by people all over the world, with popular flavors including lemon, peppermint, and cherry.
Next, we have chocolate. Chocolate has a rich history dating back to the ancient civilizations of Mesoamerica, where it was consumed as a beverage. It wasn't until the invention of the steam engine in the 19th century that chocolate could be efficiently processed into a solid form, leading to the creation of chocolate bars and other treats. Chocolate is now enjoyed by people all over the world, with various flavors and types such as milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and white chocolate being popular choices.
Gummy candy, such as gummy bears and worms, is another popular type of candy that has a unique history. Gummy candy was invented in the early 20th century by a German candy maker named Hans Riegel, who named his company Haribo (short for "Hans Riegel, Bonn"). Gummy candy quickly gained popularity and is now enjoyed by people of all ages around the world.
There are many other types of candy out there, each with their own unique history and origins. From taffy and licorice to caramels and toffee, there's a type of candy for everyone to enjoy.
