The history of Hard Candy:
According to foodtimeline.org (See Resources page), candy is derived from 'quandi', an Arabic word meaning made with sugar, which makes sense because sugar coated nuts, seeds, and fruits were some of the first candies, and today, sugar is one of the main ingredients! Before sugar, the Chinese, Indians, the Middle Easterners, the Egyptians, and the Greeks and Romas used honey. Then, by the Middle Ages, physicians made their medicines with sweetness to distract the patient from the bad taste. This method is still used today.
