About This Quiz

Why do we all love candy so much? Well, for starters, the world has had thousands of years to improve on these sweet treats. Yep, that's right! Candy has been around for nearly 4,000 years. Around 2000 B.C., the ancient Egyptians created the first candy by mixing fruits and nuts with honey, and the Greeks created "candied" fruit and flowers. While hard candies such as lollipops and similar sugar candies were around in the 1500s, it wasn't until the mid to late 19th century that our modern day candy really became popular.
