What candy was named after a Broadway play?

Kit Kat
Junior Mints
Mike and Ike

According to the company, when James Welch created Junior Mints in 1949, he named the candy after his favorite Broadway show, “Junior Miss.” The play ran for two years (1941 to 1943), and was later adapted into a radio show starring superstar Shirley Temple. This playful tribute served as a double entendre, referencing both the candy’s smaller size and a play on words from the Broadway production. Despite the fact that most people today are unfamiliar with the play, Junior Mints have remained a big hit at theater concession stands for over 70 years.

The correct answer is Junior Mints.
