Doscher’s Candy Company in Newton, Ohio, still makes handcrafted candy canes the old fashion way, using the same recipe for close to 150 years.
While the recipe hasn’t changed much in more than a century, the company's partner and VP of Sales Greg Clark says Doscher's has been collaborating with several local food and beverage companies in the Cincinnati area to use their traditional holiday confection to tap into new consumer markets. Clark joins Cincinnati Edition
to talk about candy industry trends and the culinary twists and turns that take place when you mix peppermint and beer.
