Everyone loves candy and
we mean everyone, from
polities, to movie stars, to
criminals on death row!

Find out who sucked on
what, who loved chewing
gum, who is and who isn't
the whose who of the
sweetest of treats!
Let's see......how to start......

Marie Antoinette, born 1755, died 1793 loved cake.

Now, Marie loved cake so much, she proclaimed everyone in her kingdom should eat cake!

Unfortunately for her, not all the people living in France, at that time felt the same way about cake.....believe
it or not, some of those people actually hated cake.

At the very mention, by Marie, that they should eat cake tempers flared to a boil.  One thing lead to another
and well, a whole revolution started......just over cake.

Ok, the above was a little twisted...sorry, if you want to know the real story of Marie Antoinette, it isn't here.

Who doesn't love cake, cherries, whip
cream, sugar, candy..........ahhh.......back
in a moment..............
The year was 1973 and television then is fondly
remembered now as "retro".

Telly Savalas starred in "Kojak".

Best remembered for his role as this tough New
York City detective,
Telly Savalas .  Kojak always
had a sucker in hand.  

This was my Dad's favorite tv show.  I have fond
memories of the whole family sitting down to watch
together.
Candy has long been a part of film and television history.  Candy has starred in eveything from horror films
to politics.

But you can't mention candy and retro television without talking about the famous tv show with Lucy Ricardo
and Ethel Mertz - "The Candy Factory"
The most famous use of chocolate
candies was an "I Love Lucy" episode
during 1952.
The charactor's signature line, "Who loves
ya?," debuted in the first season.  Mr. Savalas
used a lollipop as a prop.  Very smart touch.

Who is to say without lollipops, Kojak would
have become one of the best remembered
detective series during the 70's.
My sister has the I Love Lucy candy bar.  This candy bar is so old, it's hard as a rock, but she is such a fan of
Lucille Ball, that you might be tortured for the mere mention of disposing the aging bar.

Lest not forget her lithograph - My sister the Lucy freak.
But here is something she doesn't have, the I Love Lucy Salt and Pepper Shakers, do I hear present?
That reminds me..........A
couple of famous explorers
loved candy bars sooooooo
much, that they took the
"Baby Ruth" candy bar with
them to the North and South
Pole.

In 1927, the famous
McMillian took the candy bar
to the north pole and in
1929, Richard Byrd munched
"Baby Ruths" while
lumbering around the south
pole.


The best way to eat a candy
bar is frozen!

Did you mean, I should be
frozen or the candy bar?  
Does any of this make any
sense?

No?, I didn't think so.............

Among the most famous candy are the M & M's characters.

First sold to the public in 1941, it is thought that the idea came to
Mr. Forrest Mars during a visit to Spain.  

He saw the locals eating little pieces of chocolate covered with a
hard sugar coating.  He brought the idea back to the U.S.

It wasn't until 1954, however that the famous charactors were
born.

In 1960 they made a few improvements, adding color to the sugar
coating, and along with a fantastic advertising campaign, creating
a favorite candy.

Here is a commercial from the
1980 for M&M's, but I haven't found
an earlier one yet.
If you love Zero's, Sugar Daddy's,
and candies you don't see anymore,
this is a great place to find them.
