I have to admit that I discovered Albanese Candy Factory by total surprise, seriously if it wasn't for the signs along the highway I wouldn't have known that it was less than 2 miles down the road from my hotel. I stopped in early one morning shortly after they opened and before heading back home and I was in total... More

The candy store at this factory is a must see attraction for all. You can sample any of the candy and the prices are below retail.

My family likes to go to Albanese and look at all the candies they have to offer, but they love to go to Albanese and eat all the candies they have to offer. Their gummies are extremely fresh and you can buy them in assorted flavors, pick your favorite flavor, or a combination of flavors. They have gummy worms, rings,... More

This place is very good. The pistachios are very CHEAP unlike in the stores. Take the little ones here around Christmas and Easter. They can take pictures. (Limited time only). They can spectate the workers. The lines are always long at the factory. If your going on trip without the little ones you might want to go to the outlet.... More

You can't imagine the selection in this place. You've never tasted gummies like those at Albanese. If your in the area, you have to stop at this place.

We have driven right by the Albanese Candy Factory many times over and never stopped. Today we decided to check it out. AMAZING! Every kind of candy imaginable. They give samples to help make your decision a 'little' easier. Very well staffed and they were all eager to help. You can look thru windows to see the manufacturing process of... More

I can take this place home with me...at least I know it would be a great candy factory. We need one here lol. One of the reasons why I miss my being back up north. Things are so much better than down south. Tasting samples of something to try. Very friendly staff.

Stopped by on our way to Chicago, it was a good side place to stretch your legs and try a lot of really good candy. The store (since the candy is really good) was busy, so bring your patience. We made a few selections and departed. We kept in mind the items we liked but didn't buy that day and... More
