Quick trivia question:
How many pounds of candy does the average American consume per year?
If you guessed around 24 pounds (yes pounds!) you were correct! Isn’t that sort of disgusting to think about? 50% of the candy consumed is chocolate candy and the Swiss actually consume the most candy in the world at 30 pounds per person!
In 2014 let’s all try to cut that number way down and munch on some fresh fruits and vegetables instead!
