Candy and chocolate bars are enjoyed by children and adults the world over, but how well do you know your favorite candies? In 1847, the first chocolate bar was made by Joseph Fry and his son from a simple cocoa powder and sugar paste. Just two years later, John Cadbury introduced his line of chocolates to the world. Since then, not only have we continued to enjoy those candies, but we were also introduced to new sweet treats like mint and rock candy, lollipops and suckers, bubble gum and taffy, jelly beans and the ever popular licorice, some of which are available in gluten and sugar-free varieties.
From Haribo's sour gummy bears to Jolly Rancher's hard candy to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, some of us eat these treats very often, so it shouldn't be very difficult to recognize them without their iconic wrappers right? Well, as the quiz title indicates, it is easier said than done, as only 1 in 30 people can do it. Will you be that one person? If you would like to find out, you should take this quiz. Make it a challenge and get all of your candy-loving friends to take the quiz to see who's the real candy king or queen.
