Cerreta Candy Company, Glendale

(90 reviews on the web)
Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
Cerreta's was founded 40 years ago, by Jim Cerreta, Sr. who learned candy making in his father-in-law’s factory in Ohio. Jim passed the trade to his entire family.

Today three of Jim’s sons are actively involved in every aspect of the candy business.



Joe oversees production of the cream centers, where he combines modern methods with old fashion candy making techniques.

Jerry is the chocolate man. He covers the caramels and cream centers made by his brothers with the robust chocolate covering that makes Cerreta’s chocolate so distinctive.



Sales to the grocery and retail trade, running of the in-house store, mail-order operations and overseeing the web site are handled by Joner.



Even the wives get into the act. Joe’s wife Marisa gives daily tours to the public, and her enthusiasm is contagious!



Marisa & Joe’s sons work in the factory in the summer. These two boys represent Cerreta’s fourth generation of candy makers.

  • live to far from the factory .I bought some chocolates from a grocery store and the quality of the mints creams and truffles was second to none. stores limit what they will carry so I wish I was close to your store as you have many more selections available. your prices are much better than what other comparable candies ask. will continue to enjoy what I can get from this store unless you can point me to where I can get a better assortment. I didn' t mention the store because I may not be allowed ti. I live in surprise if that helps.
  • The staff is super friendly. Tours are available of the candy making operation. And the best part--free samples of individually wrapped candy before you buy😀
  • Decadent chocolate candy. High quality. Better than See's candy or Ethel M at a reasonable price.
  • My entire family ages 6months to 81 enjoyed the tour! It was so fun for all ages to see candy being made. I would recommend calling ahead to see if there is a large group scheduled just in case that is something that would matter to you (We had a group of 90 pre-school aged children and still got to see and hear everything so I wouldn't let it deter you too much). Plenty of opportunity to buy some delicious treats at the end but absolutely no pressure from the tour. Great way to kill 30 or so minutes and learn something along the way!
  • Cool tour for the family. The best part is that it was free. My kids loved it. There is an activity that you can do at the end that you have to pay for but you don't have to do it. The candy and chocolate here is actually very reasonably priced. Come check it out and supports a long standing family owned business.
