Halloween Fun!

Did you know?!?!

(according to MentalFloss - Halloween candy facts)



THE CREATOR OF REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS NAMED THE TREAT AFTER HIMSELF

- Harry Burnett Reese


A DENTIST INVENTED COTTON CANDY- dentist William Morrison partnered with confectioner John C. Wharton to devise a machine that used centrifugal force to turn sugar into cotton-like strands. The result was cotton candy, but that name didn’t come until the 1920s. Morrison and Wharton called their treat “Fairy Floss.” THE TWO M'S IN M&M’S STAND FOR MARS AND MURRIE

IT TAKES LICKING MACHINES (YES, THEY’RE A REAL THING) ANYWHERE FROM 364 TO 411 LICKS TO REACH THE CENTER OF A TOOTSIE POP- Human lickers, on the other hand, averaged just 144 to 252 licks

THERE IS SUCH A THING AS EATING TOO MUCH CANDY

IT'S NOT CHOCOLATE BETWEEN THE LAYERS OF WAFER IN A KIT KAT BAR- It’s actually recycled Kit Kats

EVERY DAY, 64 MILLION TOOTSIE ROLLS ARE MADE

IT USED TO TAKE 27 HOURS TO MAKE ONE PEEP- After automation, now it only takes six minutes. That means the Pennsylvania factory can pump out 5.5 million Peeps a day!
