Can you imagine Valentine's Day without chocolate hearts, Halloween without candy corn, Christmas without candy canes, or Hanukkah without chocolate coins? Candy has always played an important and mouthwatering part in holiday celebrations as well as day-to-day life. From maple syrup invented by Native Americans to the fudge made by a Vassar College student, this text reveals how many kinds of candy came to be. The text, together with witty, fun-filled illustrations, offers an entertaining collection of little known facts on sweets from yesterday and today.
