Once you’re snacking, you won’t remember that your treat didn’t win any beauty contests. The Post checked prices for some perfect candies in the factory gift shop at $14 to $16.50, compared with $3 to $5 in the Oops Room next door.  Read more...

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.
