World Confections has been around for more than 60 years, and has produced some pretty memorable candy brands along the way. They're perhaps best known, controversially at least, for their candy and bubble gum cigarettes. While they've come under fire for these products, kids still seem to enjoy them. They also produce a huge line of confections, including bubble gum, licorice, marshmallow candies, lollipops, and more. Today they're best known for their licensing deal with huge and recognizable names. When you see Spider Man, Iron Man, Hulky, Scooby Doo, Flinstones, and other cartoon and comic characters, chances are World Confections made those under a branded license.
