It’s My Job: Widman’s Satisfying Sweet Tooths for Four Generations
Fargo, ND – If you see a candy that’s shaped like a circle with the letter M on it, that’s maple. If you see a candy shaped like a square on it, that’s a mint melt-away.
Other than employees, no one is allowed in the kitchen, not even the Food Network, which offered to feature the candy shop.
These are just a few of the tips and rules at Carol Widman’s Candy Co. in south Fargo. Carol Widman Kennedy and her husband, David, are the owners, operators and sole candy makers at the shop. They’ve run the business since 1990.
The Widman family also has two other candy shop locations, one in Grand Forks and one in Crookston, Minn.
