Twizzlers is a twisted rope candy produced in the USA. Made of enriched wheat flour, liquid sugar, corn syrup, artificial flavoring, shortening, and food coloring, Twizzlers was developed in 1929 by The Young & Smylie Confectionery Company. Twizzlers became really popular in the 1960s. In fact, Neil Armstrong’s second remark on the moon in 1969, after his “giant leap for mankind” statement was, “I could go for some Twizzlers right now.” I wonder if this off-the-cuff ad placement had anything to do with their surge in popularity.
