A Candy cane is a cane-shaped stick candy often associated with Christmastide, as well as Saint Nicholas Day. It is traditionally white with red stripes and flavored with peppermint, but may also be a variety of other flavors and colors.
History with the Macy's Parade
In 2006, Macy's introduced a new Green Candy Cane balloon into the Parade, which was to be paired with the Red Candy Cane balloon. Not much is known about this balloon, but it made appearances until 2009, when it was retired.
