Trivia: Which candy was produced by Ferrara Candy in the early 1900s?
Boston Baked Beans
Sugar Snap Peas
Correct Answer: Boston Baked Beans
So why is this answer correct? : Boston baked beans are a side dish, but Boston Baked Beans are a very popular candy invented in the 1920s. Surprisingly, the candy was invented in Chicago, not Boston, by Salvatore Ferrara, the owner of Ferrara Candy. These sugar-coated peanuts taste nothing like the side dish, but they are meant to look just like baked beans. At nearly 100 years old, they’re one of the oldest existing candies in America.
