THE SWEET HISTORY
by Beth Kimmerle
Chocolate, gummy, chewy, with nuts or without, what´s your favorite? In Candy: The Sweet History, Beth Kimmerle spotlights the star of refined sugar-the staple of childhood allowance-candy.
All of the gooey goodness of candy´s glory years are presented in this retrospective of the confection industry. Selected for their nostalgic packaging, tempting tastes, and wonderful stories, Candy pays homage to the companies and brands that have become American icons; and chronicles the history of sweet treats across the globe-from the ancient Egyptians to the first box of Valentine´s Day chocolate.
PayDay®, Chic-O-Stick, Tootsie® Roll and many more treats are featured in brilliant photos and images from the candy culture of the past. And for those with a sweet touch in the kitchen, basic candy recipes are also included.
