In this article, we’ll show you how to make the most out of National Candy Day by taking some time for yourself and indulging in your favorite sweets or trying new candies from around the world.
History Of National Candy Day
The story of candy begins in India, where people have been boiling sugarcane juice to make khanda for centuries. The Persians and Greeks learned about this practice from their interactions with the Indian tribes who invoke them as early ancestors because they believed that only Adam could know how these “reed” plants made honey without bees or any other animal aid!
The first evidence we have suggests cultivation occurred around 500 BC when Persian visitors described finding fields filled with ripe grain beneath shady trees on islands of Southeast Asia’s coastlines; however, it wasn’t until 326 BC did King Alexander II exact tribute payments from these “Golden Islands.”
The Persian soldiers have also introduced to India the process of candy making, which included boiling sugar with honey and rosewater. They called this delicacy Luqman al qadi or “chewing something sweet”. The Indians loved it, but they were already using a similar method for cooking down rice into syrup form. This mash-up of techniques led to a delicious, chewy candy as we know it today. The Chinese also contributed their knowledge and created gummies for holidays such as the New Year.
Candy is a sweet treat that was originally made in Europe, but it soon spread to America. Candy first came over during the 18th century when colonists were only eating luxuries like sugar work due to its scarcity (only available for wealthy people). However by the 1830s with technological advances and industrialization happening at full speed; candy could now be enjoyed by all classes because machinery helped make these sweets inexpensive enough where anyone who wanted them could afford them!
