A small item in Sunday’s Denver Post alerted us to Hammond’s Candies Oops Room, where customers can find hroken, shattered, bruised and fused sweets.

There is no better old fashioned candy than the world famous, 106 year old, McCraw's Flat Taffy. In 1900 flat taffy was born on a whim.

As sugar addicts and cheapskates already know, it's a scientific fact that candy canes and butterscotch pillows taste exactly the same whether they're intact or broken into pieces. The only difference? The price. In the Oops Room at the Hammond's Candies factory, thrifty five year-olds (and grown-ass men who love caramel marshmallows and saving money) can get their candy fix for less by buying the factory's fractured goods. At Hammond's, Denver's 91-year-old candy company, even the mistakes are delicious. Read more...
