Clear Toy / Barley Candy in Literature

The Candy Country

 By Louisa May Alcott 1885 Pg. 7

A lime-drop boy and little pink checker - berry girl were her favorite playmates; and they fine times making mud- pies by scraping the chocolate rocks and mixing this dust with honey from the wells near by. These they could eat; and Lily thought this much better throwing away pies, as she had to at home. They had candy-pulls very often, and made swings of long loops of molasses candy, and birdís-nests with almond eggs out which came birds who sang sweetly. They played foot-ball with big bullís-eyes, sailed in sugar boats on lakes of syrup, fished in rivers of molasses, and rode the barley horses all over country.
