Reviews - What do customers think about Candy: The Sweet History?

How did she get such a job?  Mar 11, 2005
I saw Beth Kimmerle on a Food TV special about candy and thought she had an amazing job. A candy expert? How did she get such a job? Is there an opening for me? I bought her book and found it fascinating. She covers all the old school favs from Wacky wafers and Lick M Aid. The pictures are great. If you dig candy like me and wish you had her job, you'll love this book.
Great gift for the holidays!  Dec 9, 2003
This book was listed by John Mariani as one of the BEST FOOD and DRINK books of 2003 and his words inspired me to buy several. What a treat it really is!

I have never seen another book about the history of American candy, and here, with "enormous affection and dogged scholarship", Beth Kimmerle provides an informative and graphically rich nostalgic food book.

The pictures are great--a real trip down memory lane. The book, along with a few handmade treats from the recipe section, will make a wonderful and unique holiday gift.

Candy:The Sweet History  Dec 7, 2003
This book has a great cover and wonderful pictures but it seems to have missed both the editor and proofreader. The writing is also mediocre. It's nice to look at but very hard to read especially when one is attempting to make corrections during the reading process.
Sweet and Sour  Nov 27, 2003
The Sweet:
The book is obviously well-researched, and the author's enthusiasm for the topic shines through. Each page is nicely designed and chock-full of colorful photos of vintage packages and ads. It's fun to flip through.

The Sour:
The amateurish writing style, poor editing and number of glaring typos detract from what could've been a real treat. Even a proofreader would have made a world of difference.

Candy:The Sweet History  Oct 31, 2003
Any candy lover, any nostalgia buff, anyone who sneaks a snickers or hides Hershey Bars in secret spots in the kitchen (or bedroom) will love this book. It's not only inforamative, but a trip down the sweet, sweet memory lane of childhood! It's a great gift, but like your favorite candy, don't share it unless you've got one for yourself!
