Fruit and Chocolate

Aug 20, 2012

Cool Fruit Sensations is a new local juice venture making a splash. Elmer's, makers of Heavenly Hash and Gold Brick, is New Orleans' Easter favorite and one of the oldest candy companies in the U.S.

Don Harding, co-founder of Cool Fruit Sensations, credits his wife with the big idea that launched them to sudden success. Rob Nelson, President of Elmer's Chocolate, carries on the tradition of being the oldest family-owned chocolate company in the country and Pontchatoula's biggest employer.
