From where the candy got its name ? well, that’s not really clear. But the most vogue idea is simply that the first person who tasted it has described as ‘Devine!’ and hence the name.

This candy has at times been declared as “Southern candy” and that’s because of the constant usage of pecans in the recipe. Lately, it is also popular in the north and in the present-day many cookbooks has included its recipe.
