Mordida!

H.E. Williams Candy Factory is located in Chesapeake and has been in business since 1919.
According to the company Facebook Page:
The family business philosophy hasn’t changed much over the years; keep it simple, work hard, and make a great product. All business is done via mail or telephone, there’s not a computer, atm, or cash register to be found, and there’s no online store; payments are accepted in cash or check only. Even still, the family can hardly keep up with the demand for their signature treats, selling batches almost as fast as they make them. We sell our tasty treats right in the factory, through local distributors in VA and NC, and we also ship orders via USPS.
