Dum Dums (Suckers)
Dum Dums were first introduced in Bellevue, Ohio in 1924, by the Akron Candy Company. The iconic candy was named by I.C. Bahr who believed “Dum Dums” was a phrase that could be said by any child. When the suckers were originally produced it was offered in seven flavors lemon, lime, orange, coconut-pineapple, cherry, grape, and butterscotch.
