I'm not used to posting business stories but after reading Nicky Bronner's interview--which I hope you will do too!--I knew I had to post it. This young man, with the help of his father and 30 chefs, hopes to revamp Halloween candy as we know it....er, knew it!! Please read, watch, and comment!!

Good for him! I've yet to come across a kid who would really care that there was unnatural things in their candy. Even my coworkers gobble it down like there's no tomorrow and we're in a science industry!

This is what it takes to be a successful business person; willing to do the research; willing to do the cost benefit analysis; willing to create a quality product. He could have acted like a lot of kids and brooded; resenting his parents and in the end making himself sick. I like this kid.

Great innovation! Dejunking candy and actually making it healthy! I'm going to start buying this unreal candy. A very smart kid and a caring one too who sees the connection between our health and what we put in our bodies! Moms and dads should be happy with unreal candy as there should be a lot fewer cavities and less cranky and hyper kids! Thanks for this very fun and enlightening post BarbCat. I can't wait to try this awesome candy!
