bulk vending, candy book A new book tracing the history of candy is now available from Faber & Faber. Candy: A Century of Panic and Pleasure packs 416 pages on the history of sweet stuff, tracing its evolution from luxury treat to everyday snack food.

Written by Samira Kawash, Ph.D., the book provides a fast-paced read through the beloved and often misunderstood world of confections. Among the fascinating facts Kawash recounts is a detailed history of the crusade against candy, which over the years has included allegations that candy led to poisoning, alcoholism, sexual depravity and fatal diseases.
