Fun Candy Cane Facts

They make over one billion candy canes every year

According to various studies, people love candy canes more than other sweets during the Christmas holidays.

We estimate that over 1 billion candy canes are made every year and around 90 percent of those are sold during Christmas and Thanksgiving.

From kids and adults, we see everyone shopping for candy canes during these two holidays. 

Normally, the top-selling week for candy canes is the second week of December. 

Even though National Candy day is celebrated on December 26th in the US, everyone stocks up during Christmas. 

So, they sell 90 percent of candies during Christmas and Thanksgiving holidays, does it mean they sell the 10 percent on National Candy Cane Day?
