The Story of the Candy Cane

A candy maker in Indiana wanted to make a candy that would testify of Jesus so he created the candy cane. He incorporated different meanings inside one candy cane. Here are some things and I bet you'll never look at a candy cane the same way again!

*He created the J shape for Jesus. Some say that it's shaped like the staff because Jesus is the Good Shepherd.

*The red represents the blood that he shed for us.

*The white represents the purity of his virgin birth and that his blood washes us white as snow.

*He is our rock, and the candy is a HARD candy.


"And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock" 1 Corinthians 10:4

*The stripes symbolize the flogging that Jesus received prior to his death.

*The smell and taste of peppermint relate to the herb hyssop.

Psalm 51:7 writes "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow."

*The candy is meant to be shared and broken into pieces for others to share as well in the illustration that Christ broke his body for us all.

    Thanks for sharing this! I actually shared this message with my Women's Ministry a few years ago when I lived in VA.

    If we LOOK closely we can see JESUS every where! Bless you!
