Candy Facts 1.) Dum Dum’s mystery flavor is always a combination of two different flavors. Instead of cleaning out the flavoring from the machine before switching to the next flavor they just let it run and sell the mixture as the mystery flavor. That means it will always be different!
2.) There was a hotline set up for parents that were concerned about their children exploding because of eating a combination of Pop Rocks and soda. You can check it on the Pop Rocks FAQ. 3.) Tootsie Rolls were once marketed as a health food.
4.) Sugar isn’t what rots your teeth! The streptococcus bacteria in your mouth like to munch on the sugar but the acid they secrete is what rots your teeth. Luckily saliva cuts down the acid so if you have five candy bars its better to eat them all at once instead of throughout the week because you will produce more saliva to cut the acid down. Moral of the story, eat all your candy at once! 5.) Nestle originally sold baby formula 6.) Candy is a health scape goat. 100 years ago doctors blamed candy for the spread of Polio. 7.) In 1943 Tootsie Roll created an advertisement featuring two super heroes: Captain Tootsie and his sidekick Rollo.
