But Nicole is different from most college sophomores with similar in- terests, because her plans include making candy by hand in her fatheris Abilene business. Vletas Enterprises, 2438 Industrial Blvd., was begun in the 1930s when her grandmother came from Greece and married her grandfather. Her father now operates the business, and Nicole said she plans to work in it because "I want to keep the tradition in the familyf' Nicole emphasized that the Vletases make all their candies by hand and use no artificial ingredients. "It's an art, you know," she added. "It's time consuming. It's not like Burger King or something. We don't just pop everything through a vertical hamburger grill without a second thought," she said. Nicole began helping when she was young by packaging candy. About two years ago she started helping her grandmother with dipping, a delicate process. The success of a batch of candy depends on the person dipping it, Nicole said. "It's not as easy as it sounds. First you have to decide if the texture is just right. lt's gross, but you have to squish your hand in all that chocolate and test it. Then you have to add the nuts or whatever," she said. "Believe me, it's a temptation to just scoop up a handful of chocolate and dig in!" Her eyes sparkled as she described dipping, her favorite step. She said every "dipper" has his own style, but her grandmother is the best. "This sounds weird, but my grandmother and I have a natural arch to our fingers, and we can hold the candy so it's just right," she said shyly. She demonstrated the finger position for dipping candy. I-Ier long, double- jointed fingers seemed to form a cradle and looked capable of producing dozens of nicely-rounded confections. - Amy Hatfield
