Description
 
Perhaps you remember the whipped splendor of the Choco-Lite, or the luscious Caravelle bar, or maybe the sublime and perfectly balanced Hershey’s Cookies ‘n Mint. Or the Marathon, Oompahs, Bit-O-Choc, The Kit Kat Dark. Steve Almond does. He embarked on a nationwide journey to uncover the truth about the candy bus. There, he found an industry ruled by conglomerates, where the little guys struggle to survive. He visited the candy factories that produce the Twin Bing, the Idaho Spud, the Goo Goo Cluster, the Valomilk, and a dozen other quirky bars. Today’s few regional candy makers mount daily battles against corporate greed and paranoia. Also explores the role candy plays in our lives as both source of pleasure and escape for pain.
