Who can forget the iconic silver screen moment when candy maker Willy Wonka opens the doors to his chocolate room for five lucky children? Another candy maker in Flagstaff ends her busy season the same way, by inviting friends and kids to see the magic of the candy room. Christine Kenndy is a second generation candy maker working in the dwindling art of small batch handmade candies. She grew up in her parents’ candy factory in Colorado. After college, and her father’s death, she jump-started the old family business with the help of a couple of friends. Their business, the Candy Plant, was born in 1999. It remains a one room factory in the woods of Flagstaff, and is no less magical than Willy Wonka’s. The Candy Plant is the latest installment of KNAU’s series Eats and Beats, stories and music from the Colorado Plateau.
