When U.S. Senators aren’t busy reviewing bills — and sometimes when they are — they’re regulating the use of candy on the floor. The Senate Candy Desk became a tradition in 1968, but it lives on today. With stipulations, of course.

Among the rules? Senators can only distribute candy made in their home states.
