The original Candy Canes were straight and sort of boring, They were invented somewhere around 1674 but it wasn’t long before French monks bent the end of the Candy Cane to turn it into a Shepard’s Cane. Well, in the 1800’s they figured out (Not sure who they are) that if you turned the Shepard Hook upside down the cane became a J for Jesus which naturally made it a favorite for Christmas! There are 1.76 billion candy canes made a year making dentists richer and richer than they ever imagined!
