Albany-- Bobs Candies is enjoying sweet success just a year and a half after nearly closing for good.

The Albany candy-cane maker's profits soared this year. After making no money in 2002 and coming close to shutting its doors after 85 years in business, the company is wrapping up its third best year in their history.

President Greg McCormack hopes the announcement will put to rest rumors the company is faltering, "Oh boy, I certainly hope so. We basically had a decent year in terms of business operations last year and this year is just tremendous. So we hope to put those rumors to rest forever."

Employees are reaping the rewards, too. Each received a check for their share of the profits for the first time since 1998.
