GREGG TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- People are hopping into Purity Candy on Route 15 near Allenwood because Easter is right around the corner.
Brightly colored boxes filled with chocolate eggs cover the tables. David Fortin of Williamsport picked out one for each of his nine grandchildren.
"Every year I've been coming here and doing basically the same thing," Fortin said. "Buying the eggs with their names on them."
Purity Candy has been a staple in Union County since 1907.
Eve Hilsher of Montoursville comes here every year for Easter candy.
