For centuries, classic confectionery treats – like candy canes, Hanukkah gelt and peppermint bark – have brought holiday cheer to American families as they celebrate the winter holidays.
Gifting chocolate and candy and sharing these treats with loved ones makes the season even more special, and even with all of the joy brought about by gifting and sharing their favorites, consumers understand that chocolate and candy are treats.
During the fall meeting of the National Confectioners Association’s board of trustees on Tuesday, October 26, Barry Rosenbaum, president of Nassau Candy Distributors, presided over his first meeting as the new chairman of NCA’s board of trustees, moving from his previous position as the board’s vice chairman.
It might be a bit divisive – you either love it or you don’t – but there’s no more iconic treat to enjoy during the Halloween season than candy corn. And there is no greater debate in American households this time of year than deciding the “right” way to eat candy corn.
Fortunately, the National Confectioners Association recently released the definitive deep dive on how people enjoy this classic treat.
