The Candy Man Can!

Closer Weekly - - Relax -

Bob Wil­liams, 94, has handed out Her­shey’s milk choco­late bars in Long Grove, Iowa, for more than a decade! Ev­ery week, the re­tired high school teacher would go to his Dol­lar Gen­eral store on dis­count days and buy king-size bars, giv­ing two to the cashiers, one to the per­son be­hind him in line and more to ran­dom peo­ple around his town of 800. “It’s guar­an­teed to light up most any­one’s life,” Bob ex­plained. He be­came a lo­cal le­gend, giv­ing away around 6,000 bars and eas­ily earn­ing his nick­name: The Candy Man! And after Her­shey heard his story, they fea­tured him in an ad and agreed to stock his fridge with as many bars as he needs to com­plete his sweet mis­sion.
