Abstract:

Perhaps you remember the whipped splendor of the Choco-Lite, or the luscious Caravelle bar. Oompahs. Bit-O-Choc. The Kit Kat Dark. Steve Almond certainly does. In fact, he was so obsessed by the disappearance of these bars that he set out to uncover the truth about the candy business. Visiting the factories that produce the Twin Bing, the Idaho Spud, the Goo Goo Cluster, the Valomilk, and a dozen other quirky bars, Almond finds that a few regional candy makers mount daily battles against corporate greed, paranoia, and that good old American compulsion: crushing the little guy. Part candy porn, part candy polemic, part social history, part confession, this is the story of how Steve Almond grew up on candy--and how, for better and worse, candy has grown up, too.
