In our eighty plus years of business, we have seen many candies come and go. Instead of focusing on making our website purely commercial, we wanted to include educational resources that can be enjoyed by consumers and educators and pay tribute to the products that have lead to our 'sweet' history.

What is history? History is the study of the past that explains the future. There is nothing more bittersweet than candy history! Some of our favorites have been created by accident and many are now being produced in the millions of quantity every day. While other online candy companies focus exclusively on selling candy, CandyFavorites.com has finished a six month project aimed at expanding educational resources.

All of the candy categories on the website now contain trivia and information designed to educate and entertain visitors while also teaching them about candy and the history behind many retro candies that we offer.

Jon H. Prince, President of CandyFavorites.com, states, "In our eighty plus years of business, we have seen many candies come and go. Instead of focusing on making our website purely commercial, we wanted to include educational resources that can be enjoyed by consumers and educators and pay tribute to the products that have lead to our 'sweet' history."

Simran Grover, a senior at Carnegie Mellon University, was responsible for creating the engaging candy blurbs. A candy lover herself, thoroughly enjoyed learning about how her favorites came about and their unique manufacturing processes. She was quite impressed that Hershey's makes 80 million kisses daily and are the 5th most popular chocolate in the United States. They are definitely one of chocolates of choice.

CandyFavorites.com is backed by one of the oldest candy wholesalers in North America, McKeesport Candy Company, based in Pennsylvania. It is one of the internet's largest candy stores and contains over 2800 items in their candy warehouse. It was one of the first online stores to offer an educational section featuring pictures of retro candy advertisements as well as history and trivia of many of the candies offered.
