Ever since the dawn of mass production, the United States has been busy churning out some truly iconic candy, drinks, breakfast cereal and everything in between. Is it really any wonder that the American extruded snack food industry alone is currently worth upwards of $16 billion?

Is it really any wonder that the American extruded snack food industry alone is currently worth upwards of $16 billion?  With everything from nostalgic standbys to inventive new seasonal flavors of our favorite snacks, from Oreos to Doritos and everything in between, it’s no wonder that America is the leader in tasty treats.

And as far as projections go, Uncle Sam’s candy industry is expected to exceed more than $19 billion by the year 2025. Let’s take a look at some of the truly iconic products that helped build an empire, from General Mills’ Frosty O’s all the way to Akron’s Dum Dums. You might even spot a few snacks you’d all but forgotten about!

Cherry Humps were like 3 chocolate covered cherries melted into one bar.  The nougat was a little drier but the cherry flavor was so good!
