About Albanese Candy
Albanese Candy

It's a Story of Sweet Success!

Albanese is a confectionery manufacturer, retailer, and distributor. For more than 30 years, we’ve made the World’s Best Gummies and Chocolates in the United States by using our simple recipe for success: putting flavor and texture first, always finding a better way, and never taking ourselves too seriously.

Our gummies and chocolates taste different because we’re different. All of our gummies, chocolates, and nuts are made at our factory located in the heart of the Midwest. We only produce the highest quality ingredients sourced exclusively from American and European growers. We’re best known for our 12 Flavor Gummi Bears®, but we have lots of fan favorites. If you like sour, our sour options that start sour, and stay sour, will surely make you pucker up! We appreciate our sugar-free and natural gummi fanatics too – we even mastered the Ultimate™ 8 Flavor Gummi Bears™ that elevate the tasting experience!

Look for the Gummi with the “A” on the Tummy to make sure you have the World’s Best in your hands.
