CandyFavorites.com, the Internet's oldest and largest candy website is proud to announce the launch of Sweet Forum, an online forum for candy lovers around the globe, as well as a revised candy blog featuring reviews with an emphasis on history and trivia.
“People love candy and I always wanted to launch a forum where people could go and discuss a product that is so linked to good memories,” said Jon H. Prince, President, “And with the recent emphasis on nostalgic candy, we are thrilled to offer an updated blog featuring product reviews along with historic insights.”
For the next few months, CandyFavorites.com will be awarding a $50 SweetCertificate weekly for the best candy memory shared on the new Candy Forum.
"Retro candy has never been more popular and I think it will be fun for candy lovers to have a place to go to voice their opinions knowing that it is populated by their peers and read by industry insiders," says Jon H. Prince. “Our new blog writer, Becca Droz, has added a marvelous educational element to our blog that is seldom encountered on other sites. She loves candy and it shows in her writing.”
“When I first started in this industry over thirty years ago no one could have imagined that there would be a forum devoted to candy. This just shows how rooted candy is in our collective psyche.” says Tom Griffin, General Manager, “and I think that visitors to our website will find this interactive element entertaining and educational.”
