History of National Candy Month 

The National Confectioners Association established National Candy Month. The first time people celebrated National Candy Month was in January of 1974. But the celebration was moved to May when it was noticed that the sales of candies often drop drastically after busy holiday seasons. This is mainly due to the new year resolution people make to steer clear of sweets. Eventually, it now settled in its current place in the summer of June. 

National Candy Month aims to celebrate the delicious confections that candy companies have produced for over 100 years. People also use this celebration to recognize the powerful economic impact of the candy industry.
