Soon, confectioners went even further and began to come up with sweets with a wide variety of fillings – fruit, grillage, praline. This holiday appeared relatively recently. Experts say that it was invented by the owners of confectionery stores to increase the demand for expensive handmade chocolates.
- The first chocolate candies with filling were made by hand, only then mass production appeared.
- At first, sweets were wrapped only in paper, later metal silver foil was used for this purpose.
- The first candy wrappers were real works of art. They were decorated with landscapes, portraits, scenes from fairy tales. Outstanding artists worked on the sketches of the wrappers.
