  3. Is it just me, or is that the prettiest candy ever?  It looks like a vintage farm kitchen decoration made from melted canning jar glass.  I don’t know if I’ve ever heard of barley sugar candy….

  4. I agree that it is so pretty, and does remind me of those chicken candy dishes.

  5. “Santa” used to leave barley sugar lollipops in our stockings when my sisters and I were very young, early 80s. The lollipops were red, yellow or green and shaped like Sants’s boot, rocking horse, other Christmasy images. I never realized they were “barley candy” until now, but the glass-like appearance of the candy is unmistakeable. Thanks for posting ... Brings back some great memories!
