Earlier today, I ended my workday in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

I just returned from a visit to Shane Confectionery, having scored some black licorice and a bag of chocolate-drizzled potato chips. As you can see, my diet is right on track. I’m even washing down the salty potato chips with Pepsi.

Shane Confectionery has been around since 1911, but there has been a confectioner on this spot since 1863. That makes this the longest-running confectionery business in the United States. Abraham Lincoln was the president! That boggles my mind! This is 13 years before the invention of the telephone! I don’t retain historical dates as quickly as my dad, but I love historical dates and facts.
