"There was a big need for non-chocolate sweets," Curl says of her hard-candy concept. "That was interesting to me, because I didn't want to get into any business involving tempering and tricky things around chocolate." Luckily for Curl, the non-chocolate candy industry expects to grow by an additional $1.3 billion in the next five years. [CNBC]
