A candy store in a suburban Chicago neighborhood is trying to change the minds of parents by offering a candy store with a twist: a candy bar with a fake “C” on the front.
The candy bar is a nod to the candy bar in the popular film “The Muppets.”
The bar contains fake candy bars with a real-life “C.”
It comes with a note from the owner asking parents to try the candy and to tell them what they’re missing out on.
“This is the real thing,” said the owner, Michael Hahn.
“It’s a Halloween candy bar.
It’s a real candy bar, so we wanted to try to get people to go into this and see what it is and how it tastes.”
The candy bars are made by a company called Hahn & Co. and are sold by the candy store.
Hahn said it’s part of a larger trend that is pushing people to pay attention to the science behind the candy bars.
“The idea is to get the kids to think about it and to learn about it,” Hahn explained.
“So they can see the science and see if they want to buy it.”
Hahn said he was inspired to create the candy with his son, 6-year-old Matthew, who loves Halloween.
He said he started noticing candy bars that were marketed with a “C”-shaped bar with no actual candy inside.
“I was like, ‘Man, what’s that about?
They’re not real,'” Matthew Hahn recalled.
“I thought, ‘Why don’t I try something else?’
I think I was going to make some kind of fake ‘C’ candy.”
Hennan’s candy store, Hahn’s Candy, has a location in the Chicago suburb of Waukegan.
He has been working with local businesses to try and sell the candy at a discount.
“It’s something that’s been happening all over the country,” said Hahn, who has been selling candy bars since the 1990s.
“People want to be more conscious of what they eat, so they know where their food comes from.”
He’s now making the candy in small batches, so that he can offer it to more customers.
Hahn says he started selling candy in his store because he wanted to share the candy, but he didn’t have a store in the neighborhood.
“When I was a kid, I didn’t even have a grocery store,” he said.
“There was a lot of junk food and stuff, so I didn, like, take a chance.
I thought, if I can just get people thinking about it, I can sell more.”
Hannan said he’s tried selling candy at other local businesses and he’s even been approached by other businesses about selling their products to the neighborhood, but nothing has been successful.
“You can’t compete with a grocery or a pharmacy,” he explained.
“We want to make sure that we get as many people to try it as we can, and we want to get it out there as quickly as possible.”
The candy bar comes with an invitation to a Halloween party, which will include candy and a free “C-shaped” bar with candy.
“What we want the kids are to experience is this candy bar that’s like, oh, you can really get a real ‘C-shape,’ and it’s real, it’s edible, and you can actually eat it,” said Hannah Hahn of Hahn Candy.
