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

Can't imagine a larger selection. Chocolates galore, hard candies, gummi candies, nuts, largest selection of gourmet jelly beans, and more. Dark chocolates are great. Most or all made on premises. Definitely worth a visit if in town.

It is always a pleasure to visit Albanese! Their selection is the best to be found. They offer a multitude of chocolates, chocolate covered, gummy, hard candies, and old time penny candy favorites. The staff is cheerful and helpful. Whatever your preference is, you should be able to find it at Albanese.

Like the cute little concept and great candy. Huge Pecan turtles are worth the splurge and gummies are good. A quick stop maybe 20 minutes or so.

It's a great stop for anyone with a sweet tooth. It can be crowded so try to go in off-peak times. The candy is fresh and delicious, esp the gummies. Buy as little or as much of each type as you want, but I dare you to leave empty handed!
