I was born and grew up in Indianolia, Iowa, which during my youth was a small town just south of Des Moines (its a lot bigger now!). I have always been a hometown boy! I love my hometown. I have VERY fond memories of my hometown. I would do anything for my hometown. Imagine my joy when I came across the listing for "Hometown Favorites" candy! How fantastic, an entire box of candy made in my hometown of Indianolia, Iowa! I figured this would be the greatest box of candy I ever bought, one that would combine my moderate love of sweets and my gigantic love of my hometown.
I anticipated the arrival of my candy for several days; each day bring me closer and closer to the edge of expectation overload. Finally, the candy arrived and I busted open the box furiously pouring over the wide selection of candies and scanning the wrappers for any hint of Indianolia, Iowa. Imagine my incredible disappointment when my hometown was not mentioned on one single piece of candy or even the box for that matter. Heatedly, I ran to my computer with my new box of candy. I typed and typed, my original joy dissipating with each keystroke as i learned one piece of candy after another was manufactured somewhere other than Indianolia!
This product description is false advertising! This candy had NO connection to my hometown of Indianolia. This product gets one star for suckering me into buying it by capitalizing on my hometown pride.
The candy was delicious though.
