Hiyah Dum-Dum! Just kidding... unless you are what you eat, and you eat Dum-Dum suckers:) We're still on the, "let's make this efficient, I've got lots of work to do" train. So enter my sister's question, "when were Dum-dums invented?"
This was one of those straight-froward answers that was simple to find. Thank goodness. Dum-Dum suckers were created in 1924 by the Akron candy Co. in Bellevue, Ohio. Their early sales manager, I.C. Bahr, figured the name Dum-Dums was an easy name for children to say.
It's hard to pick a favorite flavor... there are so many good ones. But if I had to pick... my favorite flavor is butterscotch... What about you?
