Candy Cane

What is the tradition of the candy cane?

I have been wondering what the tradition of the candy cane is because I know that it has an interesting story behind it. I just don't know what the story is exactly. I was just curious about it so please let me know if you have any info about it. Thank you !

The cane shape
The distinctive "hook" shape associated with candy canes is traditionally credited to a choirmaster at Cologne Cathedral in Germany, who, legend has it, in 1670 bent straight candy sticks into canes to represent a shepherd's crook, and gave them to children at church services.[5] The shepherd's staff is often used in Christianity as a metaphor for The Good Shepherd Jesus Christ. It is also possible that, as people decorated their Yule trees with food, the bent candy cane was invented as a functional solution.[6]
