From the maple sugar moose heads of New England to the chile brittle of the Southwest, from the Almond Roca of the Pacific Northwest to the key lime coconut patties of Florida, America loves its candy.

Coast to coast, folks fawn over national favorites. The top three selling candies in this country, according to Bloomberg/Business Week, are Hershey bars, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and M&M's — which together rake in more than $1.5 billion in annual sales.

Huh. Too bad Hershey's makes a bunch of its chocolates in Mexico.

Good's Candy in Kennard, Indiana is now in the 5th generation of candy making by the same family.

In Findlay, Ohio, Dietsch's Brothers candy is in their 75th year of fine candy making.


I can highly recommend both of these.
