Candy Buttons

Candy Buttons • please see entry March 27th for the painting revision of Candy Buttons

Candy Buttons are small rounded pegs of candy that are attached to a strip of paper. This classic sugar candy was originally introduced by the Cumberland Valley company. NECCO acquired the brand in 1980, which made them the exclusive manufacturer of this product in America. Each strip of the candy includes three flavors: cherry (pink), lime (blue), and lemon (yellow).

Candy Buttons come in two strip sizes: long and short. The long is 22 1/2 inches, while the short is 11 1/4 inches. NECCO makes 3/4 billion candy buttons in the course of a year.

Engineer and inventor George Theofiel Dib is credited with the invention of the candy button machine.
