Our sweet tooth is back! Can you say medieval gobstoppers, sugar almonds and jawbreakers? These “covered centers” have come along way and it all started with a small hard candy called comfit.
Comfits are seeds, nuts or fruits that are covered in hardened layers of sugar or chocolate. The hard sugar sweets are often made with caraway seeds, known for sweetening the breath (‘kissing comfits’). The Candy Man is back, kicking it old school by coating ordinarily healthy things more than a dozen times with sugar in order to satisfy your cravings.
