National Candy Month 2017

Reason to celebrate: June 2017 is National Candy Month.

Candy Month

While we might celebrate sweet all year long, June has the benefit of being the official Candy Month. Nobody appears completely sure why or just how June became Candy Month yet, when the title offers you licence to appreciate as much guilt-free candy as you like \*, which cares ?! That's not to say June lacks relevant record: it was in June 1963 that US confectioner Hershey's obtained Harry Burnett Reese's business (yes, the initial Reese of Peanut Butter Cup popularity) and it was in June 1904 that George Cadbury and his staff invented Dairy products Milk.

Some societies consider delicious chocolate to be a type of candy while others consider sweet an unique name for hard-boiled desserts. Nevertheless, it's quite a common term and can be used to describe toffees, marshmallows, licorice, jelly sugary foods, British stone and even more. Yum!

\* Please take pleasure in properly. Your dental professional appreciates your teeth therefore do we.
