Candy

In Morning Edition's series, Radio Field Trips, we're traveling across the state to bring you stories of New Hampshire life and culture.

This week, we traveled to Littleton’s Main Street to satisfy our sweet tooth.

There's a spring tradition that's been building over the last few years: Peeps diorama contests. Participants use those marshmallow birds and bunnies to put together all kinds of wacky and creative displays.

We started the week with a presidential inauguration, and on All Things Considered we looked at Franklin Pierce, the only president to hail from New Hampshire and one who added some unique touches to his inaugural ceremonies.

Well, we’re ending the week with another bit of Pierce lore – the 14th president has now made candy history by earning his own PEZ dispenser.
