Chalky, gritty, funny-shaped candies of old are Susan Benjamin's windows into history. And history never tasted so sweet. "Put this in your mouth and close your eyes," said Benjamin, an author, former journalist and, more recently, a candy researcher. "Now imagine you're very cold and you're fighting in the Civil War. You're in a ditch somewhere. This is what you may have been eating when you felt bad or needed some energy. That's the real flavor. " "How often do you get that?"

Two-year-old Fenris Bennett seemed just as happy ripping up grass at Shafer Park as he did later chomping down on a Tootsie Roll from his pink basket of candy. Nichola Maynard filled about a quarter of her white plastic grocery bag with candy, but no plastic eggs. “I'm good at finding candy, but I'm not very good at finding the eggs. I've only found an egg once,” said Nichola, 9, of Boonsboro. Nichola, who was wearing white furry rabbit ears at Boonsboro's Shafer Park, didn't find any plastic eggs Sunday either.

Everybody loves a parade - or so the saying goes - and that was no more apparent than at Thursday's Old Home Week Parade in Greencastle. The only traffic that moved in downtown Greencastle on Thursday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. was the home-spun parade that entertained onlookers. Sierra Wagaman, 17, of Marion, Pa., was one of thousands who watched the 95-unit parade snake its way through town. “It gets better every Old Home Week,” she said. For the soon-to-be Greencastle-Antrim High School senior, it was hard to divert her eyes from the parade route to ask her questions.

This recipe is the most often requested and sought after family favorite and a standard at all family holiday gatherings either at home or with the in-laws.  It's delightfully easy to prepare and can be calorie adjusted by replacing sugar with Truvia, as desired. My immediate family prefers the recipe without the nuts in the topping, while my mother incorporates nuts in hers. As for my sister, Katie, who is terrific in the kitchen, she always says that you need to double the topping recipe for every batch of the filling made.  To this day, I follow that advice and thus the phrase, "Candy Bar in Bowl" was created.
