So how many times can we get away with using Tony Sweet’s name in a punny headline? Well, because it’s so much fun, as often as we want. In case you hadn’t heard, Tony, chairman of the Sweet Candy Co. in Salt Lake City, became Candy Industry’s 67th Kettle Award recipient at a reception held during the Sweets & Snack Expo earlier this May.
Last month, I had the opportunity to visit Tony and the Sweet Candy Co. in preparation for this month’s cover story. Hard to believe, but the last time I had the opportunity to see Tony and his management team were back in 2003, nearly nine years ago. (Geez, how time flies!)
