Four Seasons Candy: I want candy

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - If Willie Wonka had a warehouse, it would be located in Mission Valley, where Linda Crawford and her husband Mike own Four Seasons Candy. They are San Diego's sultans of sweets.

"Candy is just a happy business. People love it," Linda Churchill said.

It's the Cooperstown of confections, the who's who and bite and chew, from Mary Janes to Abba Zabas to Buttons, Pop Rocks to Zotz to Smarties.

"We do the little Lemonheads and Boston Baked Beans," Linda said.

Four Seasons' clients range from wedding planners to prisoners.

"We used to sell a lot of Runts -- they're the shaped candies in oranges and apples and bananas -- to the prison. They use them for gambling in prison," Linda said.

And even though all this candy tastes good, it's not all in good taste.

"I haven't been able to sell this to one person. This is my favorite -- chocolate teeth," Linda said.

There is a certain nobility about this business. Even looking the candy wrappers of our youth evokes a strong memory of simpler times, when candy was dandy and life was sweet.
