The best Christmas present isn't sitting under the's waiting for you at the Albanese Candy Factory.

This holiday season meet Santa, skip the line, and take home a memory you will treasure forever.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town with gifts for the Whole Family!

Plan your visit to Santa's winter wonderland at the Albanese Candy Factory Outlet in Merrillville. Santa and his elves can't wait to meet some very special children with mountains of candy and a special bonus treat for Mom and Dad.

Ho, Ho, Ho and a Very Merry Christmas

As we all know, Santa is a busy man this time of the year, but he always has time to meet the well-behaved children, who are at the very top of his Christmas list.

Christmas is the most wonderful time of year, and here at Albanese Candy, we love to get into the holiday spirit helping parents and their children make sweet memories that will last a lifetime.

Not only is Santa's workshop located in the center of the candy factory, but we also have TV shows playing kid movies, coloring books, Christmas wish lists, and more to keep your kids entertained as they prepare for their visit with the big guy himself.

We've taken care of everything to make this a true winter wonderland for all your family to enjoy during this very special time of year!

Capture the Moment with a Professional Portrait 

Children grow up too fast – capture the magic of Christmas through the eyes of your kids with a professional Santa & Me portrait. Throw on your best (or should that be your worst?) holiday sweater and deck the kids out in their festive best to meet Santa. Just don't forget to take advantage of our very special offer. Make sure to join the #SantaIsSweet hashtag on social media!

Celebrate Christmas with an affordable portrait of your family at its happiest. You can display your photo on your mantel (don't forget to grab one of our holiday frames), share with friends and family through social media, or send it on your personalized Christmas card. With prices starting at just $17.99 this is an affordable treat for the whole family!

We're also offering a free 5x7 print with the purchase of any Santa & Me Family Package. Best of all, our photos are taken by a professional photographer, trained to help kids relax and capture the excitement and happiness on their face.

And we won't let anything distract from your beautiful pictures, which is why we never include watermarks or other advertising – these photos are yours to treasure and keep as family mementos.

Sensory Reduction Days

To provide a more relaxed Santa experience, we're hosting two Sensory Reduction days on December 9 and 10 for those who have difficulties with high sensory environments. 

Specialty Appreciation Days

This year, we're hosting two specialty days to honor our military and first responders, who can save 25% off their purchase. 

First Responder Days - December 12 & 13

Military Appreciation Days - December 16 & 17

Create a New Christmas Tradition Today

We believe one of the best things about Christmas is the family traditions that build up around it, creating happy memories that last long after the last of the Christmas candy is gone.

So, continue your family tradition or start a new one, and join us at the Albanese Candy Factory and Outlet to celebrate Christmas 2019. We promise you'll go home with memories that last a lifetime.

 P.S. Just in case you were wondering – our Santa is the real deal. You can tug his beard to test him … but, remember how Santa feels about naughty little boys and girls!
