About This Quiz

Candy has been around in various forms for many centuries, though it really took off when it became accessible to the masses during the Industrial Age (thus accounting for the remarkable state of many people's teeth in Victorian London's post-sugar, pre-fluoride age). Indeed, many major British confectionery companies began to expand, introducing all kinds of lovely sweets into our lives. Giants like Rowntree, Cadbury and Bassett's were born in the 1800s, and Fortnum & Mason came along as early as 1707!

Of course, all these candy-makers meant plenty of approaches to making candy, and that means all candies are different. Some confectioners focus more on chocolates — which, for our non-British friends, are not counted under the umbrella of "candy" in Britain — while others are all about sweets, which is what we Brits mean when we say "candy". Some do a little of both.

The upshot is that there are as many kinds of candy as there are people to enjoy it, and that means that no matter what sort of personality you have, there's a candy out there that is a great match for you. Whether you're super-sweet or semisweet, hard or soft, fizzy or plain, it's time to find your candy match. Let's get started!
