My children have done fundraising with Sarris Candies for years. We quickly met our goals, and the whole process is very easy. I now am an employee of Sarris Candies and see both ends of the story.


To those who have issues with a higher-priced candy bar, please look at what the Sarris family had to do with their profit from a $1 per bar: With their 50-cent profit, they must pay for ingredients; wrappers, both inside and out; corrugated packing boxes; labor; trucks and gasoline to make free deliveries; drivers to unload; and, of course, equipment for processing.


Add insurance and cost-of-living adjustments and you may wonder how Sarris Candies survived for three generations with a $1 bar. For those who believe that they have made so much money for this company, may I remind them that they were able to use their 50-cent profit in whatever fashion they chose.


Yes, the $1 bar was a great value, and the $2 bar 30 years later an even better one. For those of you who don’t understand why the price increased, I ask: Have you received a raise in the last 30 years?
