A Bit of History
Sour balls originated as boiled sugars- a medicine, often using fruit, herbs, mints, and other ingredients as a remedy. Later, they evolved into candies and became a favorite of grandmothers who had experienced sugar shortages in wars and economic turn-downs: the sugar-based candy became a symbol of well-being which they shared with grandchildren, dispensed from sugar bowls and purses.
