Candy Buttons

Candy Buttons, Candy Dots, or Pox are small rounded pegs of candy that are attached to a strip of paper. This classic sugar candy was originally introduced by the Cumberland Valley company. Necco acquired the brand in 1980, which made them the exclusive manufacturer of this product in the United States. Each strip of the candy includes three flavors: cherry (pink), lime (blue), and lemon (yellow). Candy Buttons come in two strip sizes: long and short. The long is 22½ inches, while the short is 11¼ inches. Necco makes 750 million candy buttons in the course of a year.

Engineer and inventor George Theofiel Dib is credited with the invention of the candy button machine.
