Cash Mob + CandyWrappers

A couple weeks ago, I participated in a Cash Mob at my favorite local candy store.  First of all: a Cash Mob is an organized event to rally around a local business, develop marketing buzz for them, and of course patronize their store.  

I'm part of an organization called OLIBA: Omaha Local Independent Business Alliance and they were behind the Cash Mob.  We chose CandyWrappers for the event!  (my absolutely most favorite candy store EVER!).  

CandyWrappers is owned by Jim & Susan Hitzemann and they use the best ingredients and family recipes for all their candies.  I go specifically for the peanut clusters - the chocolate is perfectly sweet and the peanuts are salty.  I can't get enough of them :) 

I've also recently fallen in love with their popcorns.  The have specialty flavors like white cheddar jalapeno (freakin amazing!) and the chicago mix which has yellow cheddar, regular white popcorn, and carmel popcorn all mixed together - I love this combination!  

Because everything is made in house and Jim & Susan know all their ingredients, I feel safe eating their candy and enjoying their popcorns.  

CandyWrappers is located at 123rd & Center in Omaha.

You MUST stop in there! :)
