How Are Dum Dum Pops Made? [VIDEO]

Happy Halloween! Yes, today's the day you're going to get all dressed up and go trick-or-treating. You're going to get tons of candy. And, you're probably going to sift through it all to pick out the stuff you love and will keep all to yourself and the candy you don't like  and let the older people have. For me, my favorite candy was, and still is, the Dum Dum Pop. I think I like them so much because of their simplicity. It's a small lollipop--can't get much more simple than that. If you have had a Dum Dum Pop in the last few years, have you ever come across the mystery flavor? Well, there are mystery flavors in every bag and you never know what you're going to get. Now, in honor of Halloween, here is a video of how Dum Dums are made from the Food Network. The video also tells how they make the mystery flavors. Enjoy. What's your favorite candy?

How much are planning on spending this year on Halloween festivities? According to a survey by Savers, Inc., "a family of four expects to spend $300 to costume, decorate and otherwise celebrate the holiday."

The Biggest Fireworks Displays Across the Country

Forget about the dawn's early light, this Fourth of July is all about the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air and maybe even a couple of spiders. Those are the ones that, well, look kind of like a spider, anyway.
