Candy Month – Jun, 2016 | Days Of The Year


While we may celebrate candy all year long, June has the privilege of being the official Candy Month. No one seems entirely sure why or how June became Candy Month but, when the title gives you licence to enjoy as much guilt-free candy as you like*, who cares?! That’s not to say June is without relevant history: it was in June 1963 that US confectioner Hershey’s acquired Harry Burnett Reese’s business (yes, the original Reese of Peanut Butter Cup fame) and it was in June 1904 that George Cadbury and his staff invented Dairy Milk.Some cultures consider chocolate to be a type of candy while others consider candy an exclusive name for hard-boiled sweets. However, it’s quite a generic term and can be used to describe toffees, marshmallows, licorice, jelly sweets, British rock and more. Yum!* Please enjoy responsibly. Your dentist cares about your teeth and so do we.
