I wish these folks good luck. The last sweet shop in town didn't make it, unfortunately the only stores in Bethel that survive are pizza parlors or nail salons. Otherwise the folks in Bethel won't support it.

Hope it does do better then the last candy shop and as for the comment about only pizza parlors and nail salons being the only surviving stores, not true.
A Country Touch has been there a while, Jacquelines, English Drug, etc.
Bethel is a quaint little town, hope it stays that way.

I did not write the above posting, an imposter did. While your post may be true kindly do not use my handle.

Good luck to the new store.

$9.25 a pound for PENNY candy? That's robbery. I can get it cheaper elsewhere. What are they trying to do,, pay their rent ahead of time? That's outrageous. Penny candy means just that.. a penny.. now unles there is 925 pieces in a pound then they are selling it way to expensively.

You're so literal.

Penny Candy, means A Penny for a Piece of Candy.
Nothing more, or nothing Less.

That's why the last Candy did not make it more than a few years.
Don't weigh the Candy, sell it for a
Penny.

so if I dismiss your reply by telling you sarcastically, "here's a nickel, go buy a Coke"...will you take it at face value...even when 5 cent cokes are no longer available?

"penny candy"...it's a generic term. lighten up.

I dunno? There are plenty of gyms in Bethel too. Maybe Bethel will be known for these more than PT Barnum? Well, then again, Bethel ill probably known more for their politics.

As for pizza, Famous all the way!

If you are looking for authentic, traditional pizza, Village Pizza in Stony Hill is the best pizza in town.

Per Tutti is OK if you want yuppified pizza, but their traditional stuff is just average.

If you like Greek-style pizza, Bethel Pizza House is the best.

For "craft" pizza, Lauretano's is best, but pricey.

My ranking:

Traditional:

1. Village
2. Tuscany
3. DeBernardi's
4. Capri
5. Tonelli's
6. Per Tutti's

Greek:

1. Bethel Pizza House
2. Grassy Plain Pizza
3. Famous Pizza

Craft:

1. Lauretano
2. La Fortuna
3. Rizzuto's

Comments:

Capri's crust is too sweet, as is DeBernardi's. Tonelli's sauce is too sweet and bland. Per Tutti's sauce is too acidic. They also do not use enough cheese on their pizza. Tuscany is good but not as good as Village, and Village is a better value.

Bethel Pizza has a decent crust, adequate and flavorful sauce, but most of all, they give a generous portion of cheese. Grassy Plain is also good, but the downside to their competitors is that they don't have an 18 inch pie. Famous pizza is the most bland. Their sauce is blah, and there is nothing special about their crust to or anything else to make this a better pizza than Domino's or Pizza Hut.

Lauretano's is good, but you'll need to spend more than twice as much for a village pie and go home twice as hungry. LaForuna has probably the best balance between quality and value in this genre. Rizzuto's is a big disappointment. They are chintzy with the cheese, and they must get the same heartburn-causing sauce from the same distributors as Per Tutti.
