Candy is a family affair for Paul Wockenfuss, owner and president of Wockenfuss Candies. Over a dozen of his family members are employed making chocolate confections and selling candy in eight stores in Maryland. It’s been Paul’s family’s livelihood for almost 100 years and five generations. In 1915, Wockenfuss’ grandfather Herman Charles opened the first store under the name “Wockenfuss Candy Company.”
Spring may have officially begun over a week ago, but at Mary Sue Candies, it is already summer. The chocolate eggs coming off the line today will be used in this weekend’s Bunny BonanZOO, but the bulk of the Easter treats were made by Valentine’s Day.
