Today's Reason to Celebrate

November 4, 2011 was

National Candy Day

It’s National Candy Day! Humans have been eating candies and sweet confections for thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians preserved nuts and fruits in honey, and the Aztecs and Mayans consumed chocolate during religious rituals as early as 300 AD.

Today, there are thousands of different types of candy, all with their own unique history. For example, did you know that Tootsie Rolls were created by Leo Hirshfield of New York in 1896? He named them after his daughter, who was nicknamed "Tootsie." The average American eats twenty-five pounds of candy each year. That may seem like a lot, but the average person in Denmark eats thirty-six pounds each year!

Whether you like chocolate, caramels, hard candy, or marzipan, treat yourself to something delicious to celebrate National Candy Day!

  • November is National Pomegranate Month & Peanut Butter Lover's Month & Family Literacy Month
