CANDY FREAK A Journey Through the Chocolate Underbelly of America

by | Read by Oliver Wyman

Contemporary Culture • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

If you’re dieting or diabetic, avoid this audiobook. The descriptions of huge machines extruding chocolate bars and the smell of roasting nuts would cause any such person agony until satisfied with a forbidden fix. Oliver Wyman’s enthusiasm and ecstasy convey every sensual delight the author intends as he describes extinct and existing candy--its shape, color, consistency, and aroma. Starting with the author’s childhood memories of sinful snacks, the story moves to a visit with the world’s candy bar expert, the collector of 20,000 confection wrappers and author of two forgotten books. The work also features tours of factories and tasty biographies of the inventors of wonderful sweets we’ve all had on our tongues. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
