Old fashioned white rock candy strings. In the late 1800’s, before the invention of patented cough medicines, rock sugar syrup was used to relieve sore throats. The first rock candy confection sold in the United States was white rock candy crystals on a string. Rock candy was first grown on a stick, colored, flavored and sold as a child’s confection in the early 1970’s.
