HELENA -- Nestled along Helena's downtown walking mall sits one of Montana's oldest candy stores. It's called the Parrot Confectionery.
The Parrot has been conjuring up a vast array of hand-dipped chocolates and soda fountain drinks since the early 1920's.
Owner and confectionist Brian Ackerman said, “We make things here. We make a lot of confections."
Ackerman and his wife have owned the Parrot for five years now. And, with Valentine's Day near, it's been all about the chocolate-covered strawberries.
