There are plenty of places to get your sugar fix. Candy is sold in every grocery store and lots of other retail stores, too. Although most of our candy now comes from giant factories, the art of making candy the old-fashioned way is still alive at this fascinating shop in Florida.

If you can’t be there in person, you should check out this video made by Public Displays of Confection about the history of candy canes and how they make this classic holiday treat:
