The history of the turtle candy is an interesting one. The story goes that it originated in the early 20th century when a candy maker in the South decided to combine some of the region's favorite flavors into one irresistible treat. The result was a confection that resembled a turtle's shell, hence the name. Over the years, this treat has become a staple in Southern candy shops, and Savannah's Candy Kitchen has perfected the art of making these scrumptious turtles.
