What is candy made of?

CandyCandy, specifically sugar candy, is a confection made from a concentrated solution of sugar in water, to which flavorings and colorants are added. Candies come in various colors and varieties and have a long history in popular culture.

Candy was originally a sort of medicine, used to calm one’s digestive system or cool a sore throat. Banquet hosts would serve these types of “candies” at banquets.

Candy is made by dissolving sugar in water or milk to form a syrup, which is boiled until it reaches the desired concentration or starts to caramelize. The type of candy depends on the ingredients and how long the mixture is boiled.
