Christmas Candy Canes at Whole Foods Market

While enjoying a candy cane, you may not realize that it holds deeper Christian meanings for some. The iconic 'J' shape can symbolize Jesus, and the white color represents his purity. The red stripes on the cane are a reminder of the blood he shed when he died on the cross. Even the peppermint flavor has biblical connotations, representing the hyssop plant used for purifying in the Bible.

It's interesting to note that these Christian meanings were added to candy canes after they had already gained popularity. So next time you unwrap a candy cane, take a moment to appreciate the history and symbolism behind this beloved holiday treat.
