We stopped here after a family member recommended it. The gummy candy is fresh and flavorful! Our favorites were the dark chocolate covered espresso beans, milk chocolate covered almonds were the bomb, and salted milk chocolate caramels. We also bought a six pound bag of sour gummy worms that were one of the goof up bags! They were in perfect... More

It was such a cute place! Prices were a bit high for a factory I would have thought there would be goofs or bulk type packaging that would slightly bring down the price and make it worth buying candy here rather than a full retail price store. There were no tours we could go on other than the "self guided"... More

Best gummies! Best carmels! Best toffee! and..... It's reasonably priced 👍🏻 The store gets a little congested, but it's worth it for the yummy candy.

We arrived at closing time so they weren't making any candy. I was hoping to have the opportunity to buy some 'goof ups' but they didn't have many, I guess they are too good and don't goof. I love the gummy bears!!

I fell in love with Albanese gummy bears a year back and have not since looked back. I was thrilled when Meijer starting carrying their 5lb bags and was faithful to buy regularly. Since, Meijer has stopped selling your product, much to my disapproval. Apparently, that agreement is in the works according to one of your employees at this store.... More

We ordered dark chocolate from the internet. The chocolate arrived standard shipping the next day (we live in the same state). The chocolate box had two frozen packets in it that kept the chocolate from melting. It was 93 degrees when we arrived home to find the package on the porch. And the chocolate was in great shape. The chocolate... More

This is a fantastic store/factory! Very simply laid out and easy to run from candy bin to candy bin. Hundreds of gummy candies in hundreds of flavors as well as hundreds of FABULOUS CHOCOLATE candies. Not all of the gummy candy flavors are available at all times of the year but the black cherry gummy bears are hands down the... More

The "tour"? Walking a path inside the store, looking into the factory (in which nothing was happening) through a few windows. The store: like watching a feeding frenzy in Willie Wonkas. The chocolate sample was good, but nothing special.

This is the place to find the candies that used to be at the corner "Mom & Pop stores. Show your kids and grand-kids the huge choice of candy and factory tours may be available too.
