Hebert Candies makes thousands of pieces of candy every year, and Tom Reed makes sure all goes according to plan.
With Easter just around the corner, Tom Reed mixes science, art and cooking while he oversees the chocolate-making operation at Hebert Candies in Shrewsbury. He was trained in the old-school candy making tradition as a child. Reed learned the art of making toffee, fudge and caramel by hand and he has been doing it that way ever since.
