The chewy candy was one of Nestlé’s smaller brands, but it’s a big deal for St. Paul’s Pearson, which is expanding its national footprint.

I was at Pearson's the other day and all I can say is there is NOTHING bette than a fresh Salted Nut roll. But, I have never tried a fresh Bit-O-Honey. I could be wrong!

It's actually Pearson's Candy. Pearson is another company altogether.

While this is good for our local workers, the statement in regards to bringing the brand here, "Pearson is working with St. Paul and state officials for financial incentives to do so, he said." Why is it that everyone asks for incentive money to do the right thing?

Why would anybody want to buy "Bit-O-Honey"? I always DREADED receiving those at Halloween. The only thing worse than getting a Bit-O-Honey when trick-or-treating was receiving an apple or a pencil.

Great! Now Bit-O-Honey can be ruined like the Nut Goodie and the Salted Nut Roll. The chocolate on the Nut Goodie is crappy and the Salted Nut Roll nougat is tasteless. Bit-O-Honey is my favorite candy and now it will probably be crap. Whoever took over Pearson has really screwed the flavors up.
