The Candy Man Can!
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.
