In the 18th century, widow Amalia Eriksson found her daughter Ida coming down with a cold. Amalia, who was a creative woman, rushed to the pharmacy and bought a small bottle of peppermint oil. By mixing sugar, water and vinegar and adding a few drops of peppermint oil she tried to make Ida some home made cough drops – it was intended as a medicine. Today, the candy cane is sold all across the world.
