Happiness is Candy
So I’m back in Harpers Ferry as I get ready to walk back to New York on the Appalachian Trail. My absolute favorite thing in this town is the True Treats candy shop created and run by Susan Benjamin.
The reason I love this place so much is that it is the perfect fusion of sugar, nostalgia and education. In the shop you can find candy of all types, including the candy of your childhood.
Or your parent’s
The candy is separated by decade and even by century. But what I find neatest about the shop is the education, either by Susan, her lovely staff:
The history of candy is ever on display and utterly fascinating. There are even historical candy packs that allow you to taste how say licorice has changed through the ages. Of course including a little scroll with the candy’s history.
Here are a couple of other images from the shop, and Susan is coming out with a new book and expanding her web presence this fall so stay tuned. Having a really happy day – Rev Kane
