A sweet rush for the holiday

December 21, 2003

Albany -- Turkey and ham are holiday staples this time of year. But South Georgians also seem to develop a pretty big sweet tooth as well. Stores like Harveys have had a big rush on sweets. They say they constantly have to restock on popular holiday candies and deserts like Hershey kisses. Shoppers are even cleaning the shelves of many of the ingredients for home-made deserts. The store sells up to two cases a day of most of the candy. They expect an even bigger demand as Christmas day creeps closer.
