The Record (Troy, NY) - - BUSINESS -

I trace my roots back to 1847, when one of my co- founders, an im­mi­grant, in­vented Amer­ica’s first candy ma­chine — a lozenge cut­ter — fol­lowed by a sugar pul­ver­izer. I churn out more than 600 mil­lion of my lozenge- like flag­ship prod­uct an­nu­ally. It has been so pop­u­lar that it’s been a sup­ply on mul­ti­ple Arc­tic ex­pe­di­tions go­ing back to 1913, and was given to U. S. sol­diers in World War II. I’m based in Re­vere, Mas­sachusetts, and my of­fer­ings to­day in­clude Squir­rel Nut Zip­pers, Mighty Malts, Canada Mints, Mary Janes, Sweet­hearts, Candy But­tons, Clark Bars, Slap Stix and Sky Bars. Who am I? ( An­swer: NECCO)
