Candy Caneswere met to keep kids quiet. Apparently, they were invented in 1670, when the choirmaster of the Cologne Cathedral commissioned candies shaped like a shepherd’s crook so they could be handed out to children attending the church’s crèche scene in order to keep them quiet. They were white then, with stripes added later.
