Owners Judy and Charlie McCarthy take pride in helping local groups earn money.
It's no surprise that when it comes to selling candy bars for fundraising efforts, Easton's Hilliards House of Candy takes pride in dealing with the local organizations and small groups that some chocolate-making conglomerates might otherwise overlook. After all, Hilliards has existed for almost 90 years as the small, local candy store that can deliver big flavor.

Local Confectionery Institution Likes Research Findings
Just in time for Easter – that religious holiday that is also an occasion of big time candy buying and consumption. Yesterday in the prestigious and world renowned medical publication, Archives of Internal Medicine, a study was published which supports that eating chocolate just might help people stay thin. Hmmm. The study is making news across America. Well, I, your humble Easton Patch columnist, work with Hilliards House of Candy – which has stores in Easton (also the site of its corporate offices), Canton, and Hanover – on its blog.
