Lee Swinson, owner of Golden Grove Candy Company, has found his niche in the business with the success of the Carolina Crisp Peanut Bar. For over 30 years, this local treat has been in production, satisfying the cravings of North Carolinians state-wide. The bar is made with just enough corn syrup, sugar, and salt to hold together the paramount ingredient- double roasted Carolina/Virginia-style peanuts. The double roasting process is what gives the peanut bar its rich flavor.
