Boyer Candy Factory Tour Video

mallo.jpgWe came across a video tour of the Boyer Candy factory. It is from a couple years ago, from a PA-based cable channel. But not much has changed - Boyer Candy makes the famous Mallo Cup, and also make their own version of a peanut-butter cup called the Smoothie. Lastly you'll see the creation of their chocolate and peanut-butter covered pretzels (although that's not too exciting).

Check it out at PCN
