VIDEO: Lt. Governor Visits Old Monmouth Candies

Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno stopped by Old Monmouth Candies while on a tour of Monmouth, Ocean and Mercer County Chocolate Manufactures.

Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno made an appearance in Freehold last week to get an inside look at one of Monmouth County’s oldest candy manufactures.

On Friday, Feb. 8, Guadagno spent her day visiting Monmouth, Ocean and Mercer County chocolate manufactures. Her stop in Monmouth County was at Old Monmouth Candies. There, she spoke to business owners Susan and Hal Gunther about the history of the business while going on a tour of the facility.

Since Friday’s visit was during Valentine’s Day preparations, Guadagno was able to see Old Monmouth Candies' vast seasonal selection along with the store’s most well known product; peanut brittle.

While on her visit, Guadagno learned about the evolution of the peanut brittle can and all of the ways Old Monmouth Candies is involved in the community.

Guadagno’s visit was completed with a taste of Old Monmouth Candies’ famous treats with Freehold Borough Mayor Nolan Higgins and Business Administrator Joseph Bellina.
