Sweet Ways to Celebrate National Candy Month | L’Orenta Nuts

June is National Candy Month! Chocolates!  Gummies!  Peanut Brittle! Caramels!  Mints! Sour Balls! Jelly Beans!  Here are some ways to celebrate national candy month. 

National Candy Month was started by the National Confectioner’s Association to celebrate the value that candy adds to our lives. It is also designed to show appreciation for the workers that make these treats possible, and to highlight the economic impact of  the candy and chocolate industry.  This is a great time to show your support for these workers by trying new candies! 

Here are some interesting facts:

  • The word “candy” has been used since the 13th century.  It is derived from the Arabic “qandi”, meaning “made of sugar”.
  • The candy industry is massive, creating around 55,000 manufacturing jobs in more than 1,000 factories across the country, generating about $35 billion annually.
  • Candy was originated by the Egyptians when they combined fruits and nuts with honey. The Greeks used honey to make candied fruits and flowers. However, it was the Mayans and Aztecs that used the cocoa bean, making them the first to drink chocolate.
  • Chocolate is said to have been a morale booster for army men during War World I. The U.S Army commissioned shipments of chocolate for the soldiers throughout Europe.
  • The first chocolate candy bars were made by Joseph Fry in 1847 using bittersweet chocolate.
  • Milk chocolate was first introduced in 1875 by Henry Nestle and Daniel Peter.
  • Cotton candy, first known as “fairy floss” was created by William Morrison and John C. Wharton when they made the first cotton candy machine.
