“KITCHEN GOURMET” – Albanese Confectionary: A Story of Sweet Success!

Mar 15, 2019
For over 30 years Albanese has been making the world's best gummies and candies right here in the United States. It's not surprising to see how quickly this company’s brands have grown. For years they've had a simple recipe for success putting flavor and texture first, always finding a better way, yet never taking themselves too seriously. Still, if manufacturing gummies was an Olympic sport, then Albanese would take home the gold medal! Soft texture, intense flavor, gluten free, and fat free – everything that is needed to make a champion.

Playing favorites? Albanese gummies are good enough to stand alone, which is why they are the first to be offered in single flavors. Don't get any ideas, these fresh and fruity singles are not that type of bear. But if you're ready to put a ring on it, the cherry, watermelon, green apple, and peach rings will be sure to do the trick.

Albanese gummies and candies taste different (and by different I mean better) because they are different. All of these gummies and candies are made at a factory located in the heart of the Midwest and produced with only the highest quality ingredients sourced exclusively from American and European growers. From nut clusters made with Virginia peanuts to chocolate covered Michigan cherries – you will taste the difference that better ingredients make.

With Albanese “12 Flavor Gummi Bears” you will find all your favorite flavors in one place. Flavors include Cherry, Pink Grapefruit, Watermelon, Strawberry, Orange, Blue Raspberry, Lime, Grape, Green Apple, Mango, Pineapple and Lemon. They come in 7.5 oz. bags, and now they are also available in little 1 oz. “Fun Size” bags, perfect for party favors, Easter baskets, emergency snacks, etc.

Are you ready for a walk on the sour side? Then be sure to give the “Sour 12 Flavor Gummi Bears” a try. It’s sour power all the way! Flavors include: Cherry, Pink Grapefruit, Watermelon, Strawberry, Orange, Blue Raspberry, Lime, Grape, Green Apple, Mango, Pineapple, and Lemon.

If you are a sherbet aficionado you don’t have to eat ice cream to get your favorite sherbet flavors. Each “Sherbet Gummi Bears” package has a mix of ‘fun and yum,’ creating a perfectly sweet swirled Gummi Bear – just like your favorite ice cream. Flavors include Orange, Lime, and Strawberry.

Gummis are not all for which Albanese is renowned. There are also chocolates (including mini peanut butter cups), nuts, and mixes. Come to the dark side and enjoy their fresh roasted “Dark Chocolate Almonds” -- almonds wrapped in a thick layer of rich Albanese dark chocolate. You'll be happy you did!
