National Candy Day: November 4

Nov 04, 2014

Even if you had NO CLUE it was National Candy Day, we’re sure you’re happy to know you can celebrate this holiday every year! Of course, lots of people – dentists, especially – would argue we already HAD a candy day a couple of days ago (Halloween), but November 4th is, in fact, an official holiday.

Falling on the same day as Election Day in the U.S., National Candy Day is a sweet way to celebrate all the different kinds of delicious candy eaten by people all over the world. There are hundreds of thousands of different types of candy, all with their own unique flavors, tastes and histories. For example, did you know that Tootsie Rolls, created by Leo Hirshfield in 1896 were named them after Leo’s daughter, whose nickname was Tootsie?

Candy isn't just for kids, either. Americans over the age of 18 eat about 65% of all the candy produced each year. Candy is also a favorite treat worldwide. Though the average American eats 25 pounds of candy each year, the average person in Denmark eats 36 pounds annually!

So whether you like chocolate candy, gummy candy or super-sweet and sugary candy, celebrate National Candy Day with your favorite sweet treat!
