One such woman was Esther Price, the founder of Esther Price Candies of Dayton, Ohio. She began making candy to help make ends meet during the Depression, fighting every step of the way against all odds to continue making candy. Always she had to hold fast to her unyielding determination and to her deep-seated belief that nothing is impossible. The name "Esther Price" of Esther Price Candies has become a company name synonymous with the candy. "Have an Esther Price," they say, meaninig, "Have a piece of candy." Soon, if not already by younger generations, Esther Price, the woman with the dream and determination, would be forgotten too. Instead, she recorded her story. Esther Price was a great candymaker, a true candymaker at heart forever. And that's the story she tells in Chocolate Covered Cherries. This book ncludes Price, Augspurger, Rohman, Mueller, Otto, Freese and Slye family histories.
