Albanese Candy Factory

Attraction details
Reviewed 30 March 2013

We tried to hit this location today but I am guessing because its 2 days until Easter and the Bunny was there it was packed. Down the road about 5 miles West is there outlet store (1910 W US 30). While it is not as fancy as the factory and doesn't have the history or tour - it does have CANDY. There is always something on sale and some samples available. They are known for their gummies and they are delicious but their chocolates are wonderful, too.

very fun. The candy was fresh and the chocolate was pretty good. Would definitely go back! Lots of choices, and many candies from an era gone by.

I love stopping here. ( Its not right off the exit, but just a few mins down the road) Lots to see. Best-tasting gummy bears ever. Lots of other candy choices. Window into the factory to see the candy in production. Giant chocolate waterfall. good prices. Friendly and helpful staff. Theyll even let you sample before you buy. I also like their choc covered coffee beans and skinny malt balls. Great place to find sweet tooth gifts. It gets very crowded near xmas but be patient, the workers keep the lines moving. Something here for everyone!

We were bored on Saturday and decided a road trip was in order. We went here it has been on Unwrapped and 190 north (a local show). It was fun Jelly Belly was there with a promotion and free beans and they had quite a selection inside the Gummi's are fresh and soft as they are made right there. The carmellos are to die for (almost as good as the ones at disney) they also have a great selection of nostalgic candy. We were able to buy some nice teacher gifts at this place as well. It is not far from the Chicagoland area Sauk trail to 30 and in about 40 minutes poof we were there. This is a fun little place to drive to and kill about an hour and get some really tastey candy.
