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.
The attention of the candy makers then turned to the next seasonal treat, salt water taffy. And that, according to William Buppert, president, signals thoughts of warmer weather. “It’s summer time for us when we switch over to taffy.”
Whatever the weather, the confections created by the company, founded in 1948, are handmade.
