Psst! We have a secret to share with you. June is National Candy Month! Yes, you read that correctly! As such, throughout the entire month, we get to celebrate the goodness of chocolate, sugar, and gummies. Is your mouth watering yet? It’s about to be!
Here are some interesting facts about candy:
- Germans consume twice as much candy as Americans
- 65 percent of American candy bars were introduced more than 50 years ago
- Gummy worms were introduced on July 15, 1981—the 50th anniversary of gummy bears
- A one-ounce piece of milk chocolate contains about the same amount of caffeine as a cup of decaffeinated coffee
