  • Trivia

    • A retired milkman in Indiana has eaten at least one Twinkie a day for over sixty years for a total of more than 22,000.

    • Denmark has the highest per capita consumption of candy in the world at 29.5 pounds annually.

    • While the rest of the country eats hard pretzels at a rate of one and a half to two pounds per year, Philadelphians consume twelve times that amount.

    • The melting point of cocoa butter - between 97 and 99 degrees Fahrenheit - is right at human body temperature, which is why chocolate melts in your mouth.

  • Quotes

    • Narrator: Extruders, molds, injectors, are these machines manufacturing adhesives, plastics or parts that go on your car? No. They're making treats that melt in your mouth not in your hand. Sit back, relax, and grab a candy bar, potato chip, pretzel, lollipop, ice cream cone or a cupcake while we say a mouthful about some of the world's favorite snacks. Now: Snackfood Tech, on Modern Marvels.
