WESTON - Jim Leimgruber is no stranger to candy-making.
In fact, unlike most of us who are proud of ourselves if we can produce a batch of candy or two around the holidays, he keeps it up nine months of the year.
"I haven't found a candy formula that I haven't tried yet," he said. "If I find one I'll vary it to make it my own. Peanut brittle, brickle, and basically anything you can think of."
The list starts and ends with fudge.
But not prosaic chocolate fudge. He's got more varieties in his repertoire than the fudge vendor at the Wood County Fair.
"Maple fudge, chocolate cinnamon, pumpkin molasses, root beer" are just a few of his specialized flavors, 18 at last count.
"My own favorite is a white chocolate with cherries and pineapple. That's also somebody else's favorite too. She's waiting for me to make it again."
