As I mentioned in a different post, I worked there briefly in the mid 70's. The odd thing is, I don't ever remember seeing their candy in the stores. They used a lot of coconut, we had to lift 100 lb bags and dump them into huge mixers. The mixers were on the second floor, feeding press type machines on the first floor by gravity. I vaguely remember a "bob bon" type candy and a type of hard candy too. There was something they made called I believe a "hot Mo", I can't say exactly what it was made of though. I wish I could tell you more but this was a long time ago and I only was there about a month.
