Fact of the Day: Sugar Candy

The English word candy came through a French word but the French word itself was derived from the Arabic words sukkar quandi which roughly translates as "sugar piece".

It's late in my neck of the woods so when I saw the title of your post in my Blog Roll I couldn't resist dropping in and staring at the candy as I'm having a sweet tooth moment... and there are no sweets in my house.

Interesting little tidbit on where sugar gets its name.

I had no idea. I'm getting better at resisting my sweet tooth, especially for candy. Terry and I tried sugar cane juice at a Vietnamese New Year's celebration last weekend. Yuck!
