A self-professed candyfreak, Steve Almond set out in search of a significantly-loved candy from his childhood and discovered himself on a tour of the little candy businesses that are persevering in a marketplace exactly where huge firms dominate.From the Twin Bing to the Idaho Spud, the Valomilk to the Abba-Zaba, and discontinued bars such as the Caravelle, Marathon, and Choco-Lite, Almond uncovers a trove of singular candy bars manufactured by unsung heroes operating in old-fashioned factories to generate anything they adore. And in correct candyfreak fashion, Almond lusciously describes the wealthy tastes that he has loved considering that childhood and continues to crave today. Steve Almond has written a comic but in the end bittersweet story of how he grew up on candy-and how, for far better and worse, the candy industry has grown up, too.Candyfreak is the tasty story of 1 man\'s lifelong obsession with candy and his quest to discover its origins in America.
