CANDY TRIVIA

2012 Statistics*

American adults (18 and over) consume 65 percent of the candy that's produced each year.

The Dutch are the biggest eaters of candy, at 65 pounds per person a year; Americans eat about 21 pounds a year.

Halloween, Christmas, Easter and Valentine's Day are the biggest candy selling days in that order.

If you look in the garbage of the average American home after Halloween, you find empty candy wrappers. However, after Valentine’s Day, you will find the wrappers, boxes and candy all thrown away.

It is supposedly against the law in Idaho to give anyone a box of candy that weighs more than 50 pounds.

Pop Rocks were introduced by General Foods in 1974. Ever since 1956, when company research chemist William Mitchell found a way to put carbon dioxide into a solid, General Foods had searched for a product to market using this process.
