History of candy

History of candy Candy… which both children and those who are not so young, like so much, has not always been something to sweeten our palates only for pleasure or indulge ourselves: when they were created years ago, had its explanation and purpose.

It is intimately linked to the discovery of the Sweet and especially honey; the first sweets were created with fruit, grains and honey.

In former times, travelers prepared a sweet, juicy paste with fruits and cereal powder, even the ancient Egyptians developed their candies mixing honey and fruit, and forming them in a variety of shapes. But it is in India from where the discovery of sugar was developed, there was made for the first time solid sugar.

The name in Spanish comes from the discovery of sweet sugar cane, also called "honey cane" which in Latin is called the "canna melis" and that eventually will lead to “caramelo” and caramel. With sugar cane, new and better techniques pastries were developed. The problem was that for centuries, it was a luxury product like it was in the Middle Ages.

In this era when dragée also made, candy covered with sugar or chocolate and stuffed with nuts, crocantis, raisins… These pills were added aromas of strawberry, violet or musk and were given various colors, in order to give them an attractive presentation.

Since 1960, the new technologies started to be imposed on the manufacture, and until today, the most modern techniques are used.
