From Medicines to Treats

Hard candies such as stain glass originated as throat lozenges and treats. The boiled sugars of the 1600s evolved into drops in the 1700s – and of course stain glass. By the mid to late 1800s, familiar hard candies like butterscotch disksclove ballssour balls, and others were all the rage.

Stain Glass… Candy?

Colorful stained glass spans these time periods and was often made at home. It’s even featured in Martha Washington’s cookbook! And the cherries? Cherries were of course enjoyed for their fruit, but the bark was also used as a sore throat remedy among Native Americans and colonists. Comes in a 4 oz bag with the history on the label.
