Future of Candy is rooted in the past...

CandyFavorites is proud to announce the launch of our newly designed, state of the art, website!


Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) 11 January 2011 —, the Internet’s oldest and largest online candy store, has launched a redesigned website incorporating advanced online ordering, live chat, a visual search engine and an enhanced retro design that pays tribute to American candy history.

 “We’re creating an online experience for candy lovers that goes beyond commerce,” says Jon H.Prince, President, “our goal is to provide a single destination for candy education, the purchase of everyone’s favorite candies and to pay tribute to an industry that has brought joy to candy lovers throughout many generations.”

 The newly designed site offers over 2800 varieties of candy, with an emphasis on bulk candy, Brachs Candy and hard to find old-fashioned and classic candy offerings. It also features an expanded candy history section as well as a blog featuring product reviews and an opportunity for unbiased consumer interaction.

 With an emphasis on customer service features and round the clock customer support, CandyFavorites aims to continue to provide the best customer service in the online candy industry.

 “Candy is what we deliver but service is what we sell,” says Jon Prince. “It has been this way for over eighty years and we see no reason to change a working formula.  Too many sites focus exclusively on selling and forget that the customer experience is what makes an online shopping experience memorable.”

 As the founder of McKeesport Candy Co, Ernest Prince, said in his 1955 Presidential keynote speech to the National Candy Wholesalers Association, “To continue progress, the candy wholesaler must find better ways to serve the mass work. Two very important ways in which he is better equipped is the quality of customer service and availability of merchandise.”   “I couldn’t have come up with a better strategy” says Jon Prince.


About McKeesport Candy Co. / 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 oldest candy stores and has 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.
