Why We Love National Candy Day
A. It's always tasty
If you've never had a king-sized Kit Kat bar or pack of Sour Patch Kids, then you haven't lived. Candy is delicious. End of story.
B. Childhood nostalgia
Some of our best memories as children include the sweet taste of candy. From crushing piñatas at birthday parties, to passing out Hershey's Kisses for Valentine's day, candy was always involved. No matter how much we grow, candy will always bring back those special memories.
C. It's improves your mood
Happy? Sad? It doesn't matter! Candy is used by many people as a way to boost happiness. It has a natural knack for lifting our moods. Think of break up scenes in movies - what do girls use to help go over their sadness? Chocolate! The same goes for happy moments. Chocolate is used to reward kids. See what we mean?
