According to blogger -- and maker of the cinnamon hard candy pictured above -- A Stove With A House Around It, "The taste of the sweet and flavorful hard candy is one of those tastes that instantly transports me back in time." During the early 19th century, lemon or peppermint flavored hard candies were prominent and popular, but these days, they exist in nearly any flavor imaginable: maple syrup, butterscotch, even jalapeno. But if you are boosted by some serious holiday spirit, there's one clear choice: Make your own candy canes for this season's ultimate hard candy.
