D.C. just keeps getting sweeter!

Not only does the National Confectioners Association satisfy our sweet cravings, they also bring a powerful and meaningful message to the candy industry through their #PowerOfSweet initiative.

The CEOs of top U.S. manufacturers of chocolate, candy, gum, and mints are in town this week for their annual fly-in, educating Members of Congress about the #PowerOfSweet and the need for sugar reform.
