How serious is our national candy habit? According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Americans consumed 23.8 pounds of candy per capita in 2008 (the most recent year for which data were available). Responding to America’s sweet tooth, 1,333 manufacturing establishments produced chocolate and cocoa products in 2012, employing 37,150 workers. The industry’s value of shipments totaled $14.4 billion in 2012.
