Heide Candy Company Since 1869 - Still Making The Good Stuff - Red or Hot Raspberry Dollars
An American standard in the candy business, Heide is a legendary producer of a variety of candies. Most are packaged in the 'movie theater size' boxes and can be found from 99 cents to around 1.50 for a nice healthy sized portion.
Take a look at the picture above where they have a dollar sign right on top of each piece of candy. These are raspberry dollars, but they also have red hot dollars. Leading us to think that they use the same 'machinery' to produce both - an excellent example of strong management and good business. Why have two machines if you are just swapping flavors?
We here at the Fat Pride Times hope Heide continues to spoil us with their candies for another 100 plus years.
