SWEET Land of Liberty

NPR is taking a cross-country tour of candies from around the U.S., sampling hometown sweets that deliver a nostalgic sugar rush. 

America loves its candy!  The tops three selling candies in the USA are  Hershey bars, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and M&M’s.  But Americans also rally around regional favorites. 

Someone from Minnesota probably loves the Nut Goodie.  A Texan probably can’t do without his Chewie Pecan Praline.  Wisconsin folks favor a Melty Bar.  Around here we enjoy a GooGoo Cluster.  Learn more about this sweet NPR series here.
