I stopped here on my way through Northern Indiana. The "candy factory" is essentially a large candy store with windows to view some candy creation. The store has a huge selection of chocolates and gummies. The workers were all very friendly -- even dealing with me and my many odd requests/questions! The store is worth a stop en route but...

I like all the variety of candy. They have a lot of sugar-free candy. They sell the goof ups in little baggies for like $2.50 and gives you a chance to try it out.

Great place to take the kids, who am I kidding, I loved it too. After doing the video tour we were able to try any and I mean any kind of candy we wanted. They have something for everyone and my choice was chocolate. They have chocolate covered everything and it was all good. The staff is very friendly and... More

Just off US 30, this is a great place to stop and see how the candy is made and the free samples. The "offlot" candies are a great bargain. There is a self-guided tour. Don't forget to ask for the free samples.

This is the best candy store on earth. They have the best gummy bears anywhere as well as all kinds of other shapes that taste just as good. You can buy the big five pound bag that may last you more than one day and you can buy for a bargain price the five pound bags just inside the door... More

There is enough candy here to float New York City! Free samples at the door were great start. Our chocolate covered cinnamon gummie bears were a fun treat.

This candy company makes the very best gummy candy. This store also carries a large selection of jelly beans as well as melt in your mouth chocolate. I was recently at this store this week and picked up some treats for the family.

My husband kept telling me that these were the best gummy bears and he was correct. Great chocolate too and cheap prices. Yum!

There are lots of signs on the interstate for the Albanese Candy Factory. It is so cute on the outside and so colorful on the inside with all the candies. They have SO many different candies, gummies, and chocolates. Some are prepackaged, but the most fun is buying from the bulk bins. Since it is the factory location, I wish... More
