About a month ago, NPR ran a great, thoroughly reported story about the state of candy in the U.S., with a special focus on different regional specialties from all over the country.
Back home in Texas, Lammes’ Candies are a go-to treat, and my stint in upstate New York introduced me to sponge candy. I haven’t figured out what North Carolina is known for yet.
What about your hometowns, readers? Any notable local treats that you want to share?
