Dum Dums lollipops, Dove chocolates, Dots, Daim bars, Dairy Milk by Cadbury, Dagoba organic chocolate, divinity, Dip Dabs, and Dew Drops are all kinds of candy that start with the letter “D.” Some people think that gum is candy. All three types of gum Dubble Bubble, Dentyne, and Doublemint start with the letter “D.”
Dum Dums are one of the most popular kinds of lollipops in the United States. They were made for kids by the Akron Candy Co. in Ohio in 1924. A few decades later, in 1953, Spangler Candy bought the company. It still makes them today.
Because of the ice cream truck, Dove is one of the most popular chocolate candy brands in the U.S. In 1939, a man named Leo Stefanos didn’t want his kids to chase the ice cream truck down the street, so he made his own ice cream bars and started selling them in and around Chicago. Years later, in 1986, Mars bought the Dove company. Today, it makes ice cream bars and many different kinds of chocolate candies and candy bars.
Dots, a popular gum drop at the movies, have been around since 1945. The Tootsie company now makes more than 4 billion of them every year. Cherry, orange, strawberry, lemon, and lime are some of the original flavours. There are also tropical and sour flavours.
Daim bars are made in Sweden, but because they are sold in IKEA stores, they have become popular in the U.S. Each bar is made of toffee that tastes like almonds and is covered in chocolate, like a Heath bar.
Cadbury makes Dairy Milk, which is a kind of chocolate candy bar. It comes in different flavours, like English toffee, fruit and nut candy, roast almond, caramello, and milk chocolate. Mondelez International is the company that owns Cadbury right now. It is the second largest candy company in the world, after Mars.
Dagoba is a brand of organic chocolate that makes chocolate bars, chocolate drinks, and chocolate products for baking. Bars come in two flavours: rich dark and extra dark. All of the chocolate made by this company is carefully sourced so that it doesn’t hurt the environment. The company also works to give women more power and to stop people from getting food allergies.
Divinity candy, which is made from egg whites, corn syrup, and sugar, has been around since the early 1900s. Both homemade and store-bought versions are made the same way. The oldest recipes that we know of are from 1907 and 1915. Today, many famous chefs have their own recipes, but the end result is always a candy that tastes like nougat. Some people choose to put in nuts and dried fruit.
Dip Dabs is a popular British song from the past. It was made by Barrat. Tangerine Confectionery is the company that makes it now. The candy is a powdered sherbet with a lollipop inside that you can dip into the powder and lick off.
Dew Drops are fruity candies from the past that have a sugary coating. They have the shape of gumdrops and feel like gel. They are made by more than one company, and most candy stores sell them in bulk today.
