Perhaps you remember The Marathon, Oompahs, Bit-O-Choc, or Kit Kat Dark. Where did they go? Driven by his obsession, stubborn idealism, and the promise of free candy, self-confessed candyfreak Steve Almond takes off on a quest to discover candy's origins in America, to explore little companies that continue to get by on pluck and perseverance, and to witness the glorious excess of candy manufacturing. By turns ecstatic, comic, and bittersweet, Candyfreak is the story of how Steve Almond grew up on candyand how, for better and worse, candy has grown up too.

I loved this book. It made me want to go to the dollar store and try to find back some of my favorite candies from my childhood.
