Candy is a staple of Halloween—or any holiday for that matter—and it just wouldn’t be All Hallow’s Eve without it. Candy comes in all shapes and sizes: Gooey, chewy, hard, glazed, chocolate, cherry, you name it, there’s a candy out there that has it. We have three of the finest confectioners in our region in the studio with us today.
