Are you really the oldest candy wholesaler in the nation and the Internet's oldest candy store?

CandyFavorites was launched under a different name in 1997, making it amongst the first candy related websites. We were the first online retailer of many of the candy brands we carry. We are backed by McKeesport Candy Co., which opened in 1925, but was incorporated in 1927. This makes us one of the oldest privately owned wholesale candy companies still in existence! 

What is it like to work at a candy company?

Well, it's pretty sweet. The employees say it is like being a kid in a candy store. With a candy warehouse over two city blocks long, we have to agree!
