Personalized candy is a new development on an age old treat that has existed for hundreds of centuries. Fast-forwarding from the first Mayan who revealed chocolate beverages to the first candy bar molded in 1847, (over 15 centuries later) our present day sweets variety have come a long way in a short time. The discovery of the sugar beet made candy what it is today- in medieval times, candy was a coveted treat only for the wealthy, due to expenses of imported sugar cane. Treats can be found these days in almost every place of business, from gas stations to pharmacies. Sweets have journeyed a long way since the Mayans- the personalized candy of today would be irreplaceable to a 1400′s era emperor if he could look down and see his imperial face printed on a random treat.
