April is National Garlic Month, May is National Strawberry Month, and June is our favorite month of all: National Candy Month! For an entire month, Americans everywhere celebrate the confectionery industry in all its sweet and sugary glory. If you’re looking for ways to enjoy National Candy Month this year, read on!
A Positive Economic Impact
According to the National Confectioners Association, National Candy Month 2017 will showcase the industry’s contribution to national and local economies. With more than 55,000 employees in facilities across the United States, candy companies represent a significant employer in many regions. The confectionery industry also indirectly supports an additional 400,000 jobs in areas like retail, agriculture, and transportation.
Commitment to Responsibility
According to the American Heart Association, the average adult should consume 35 to 37 grams of added sugar a day. For the purpose of encouraging consumers to live healthy and happy lifestyles, confectionary companies continue to provide clear nutritional facts and innovations in packaging. Candy is a treat, after all!
Wockenfuss is proud to be one of the oldest candy makers in Baltimore. As a family owned Business, we take great pride in our product and the areas we serve. This June, celebrate National Candy Month by visiting your local shop and perusing our selection!
What better way to honor a month dedicated completely to candy than to take a bite of a delicious caramel apple? We start with a crisp Granny Smith apple and drench it with our creamy caramel. Then we dip it in a variety of chocolates, nuts, and candies. Pick up yours today!
