Biographical Info

It’s a Story of Sweet Success!

For over 30 years Albanese has been making the World’s Best Gummies & Candies right here in the United States. It’s not surprising to see how quickly our company & our World’s Best & Gold Label brands have grown. For years we’ve had a simple recipe for success putting flavor & texture first, always finding a better way & never taking ourselves too seriously.

Our gummies & candies taste different (and by different we mean better) because we are different. All of our gummies & candies are made at our factory located in the heart of the Midwest and produced with only the highest quality ingredients sourced exclusively from American & European growers — sorry China. From nut clusters made with Virginia peanuts to Chocolate covered Michigan cherries – you’ll taste the difference that better ingredients make.

Don’t be fooled (we’re pretty sure your taste buds won’t be) but you can always spot the World’s Best Gummies by checking the belly – all Albanese Bears get the “A” of approval stamped right on their belly before they leave our factory!


1998Albanese invents a new technology to allow for greater flavor release from gelatins.

2001Albanese breakthrough allows for even more sour flavor to be added to our gummies.

2002Albanese wins the Professional Candy Buyer’s Product of the Year award recognizing us for innovation in gummi candies.

2003Brought back the almost lost of art of rotogravure printing for use on all our packaging.

2006Nominated again for the Product of Year in the non-chocolate category.

2006Received the prestigious Techonolgy Award for developing process of placing Omega 3 Fish Oil into a gummi.

2008Once again nominated for Product of the Year in the non-chocolate category. We may be the most nominated company!

2011Received approval by the FDA for a Vegetable/Fruit snack for the school lunch program, exceeding the most demanding State requirements.
