Candyfreak: Confessions of a Chocoholic Summary


Steve Almond has eaten sweets every day of his entire life (well, since he was weaned anyway). Steve Almond thinks about sweets at least once an hour. Steve Almond has between three and seven pounds of sweets in his house at all times. He's American, so he calls it candy, but we know what he means. Steve Almond is a candyfreak, a chocoholic, a confectionery junkie. Some might be content only to consume, but Steve knows about chocolate. He's a connoisseur, a hunter-down of rare and obscure chocolate bars, an expert on the sweets of yesteryear. Experts on wine can make a living out of it, but professional openings for candyfreaks are rare. So Steve decided to write a book. As an author, he could write to Willie Wonkas across the country and be invited to visit their factories. He could be instructed in the dark (and milk) secrets of the craft of chocolate-making. Best of all, he would get large amounts of free chocolate. Mars, Hershey and Nestle may dominate the chocolate trade, but there remain plenty of small independent chocolate-makers, the producers of the Twin Bing, the Idaho Spud, the Goo Goo Cluster, and others stranger still. "Candyfreak" is a confession, a harrowing and heartbreaking memoir of addiction and dependency (well, not really), a gloriously eccentric travel-book and a hymn to chocolate. You may find it addictive.
