As we approach Valentine’s Day, Charlotte Talks took a special look at an industry that sells $25 billion  worth of product each year, employing tens of thousands of people: the candy industry.  It’s a sector dominated by small, family owned businesses that have been able to foster relationships with their customers, one that impacts healthcare, the economy and – in this case – love lives!  

WFAE's Mike Collins spoke with Clay Gordon, Author of Discover ChocolateSusan Whiteside from the National Confectioners Association and Chef Geoffrey Blount, a Baking & Pastry Arts Instructor at CPCC about the very sweet topic. You can listen back to the discussion here or download the podcast. 

Happy Valentine's Day!
