3.5/5 based on 70 reviews on the web
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.
