Valentine's Day Candy at To the Moon Marketplace
Clean Plate Charlie caught up with To the Moon Marketplace owner Antonio Dumas, who gave us a sneak peek at some of the sweet treats the shop is offering for Valentine's Day. We stood by while he broke open boxes that came back with him from a national candy convention. We were like a kid at Christmas, watching him unpack one delicious goody after another.
Here are some of our favorites:

5lb World's Largest Gummi Bear. This cherry-flavored bit of gummy goodness is supposed to take the average candy consumer several weeks to eat. Apparently they don't know Charlie, who has never met a gummy he doesn't like.
Milk Chocolate Pecan Myrtles. Antonio described these gooey chocolate-caramel clusters as "way better than your standard Turtles."
Conversation Heart Lollipops. Sucker your sweetheart into thinking you're a hopeless romantic by giving her one of these colorful lollipops.
