Why are they called BB Bats?
Many people have wondered why they are called BB Bats, and I must confess upon hours of research I could not find any real explanation as to why these go by the name of BB Bats. My only conclusion is that perhaps they were enjoyed during all those fun Summer Baseball games, while you watched your friends play, or sat watching the game while enjoying your BB Bat. To say they were made to resemble a baseball bat, would be a far stretch, other then the fact that they are on a stick.
What ever the reason, we'll just have to ponder this question while eating copious amounts of this old fashion candy, BB Bats!
