Chocolate Cinnamon Bear Candy is Unique to it's Home State

Chocolate covered cinnamon bears are to Utah like the Goo Goo Cluster is to Tennessee or the Idaho Spud is to Idaho. All of these crave-able confections marry delectable ingredients with a luxurious chocolate coating. For those who don't already know, Utahns love candy, in fact, we eat more candy per capita than any other US state! So, it’s no surprise that, for almost 120 years, the Sweet's Candy Company in Salt Lake City, is renowned as one of the oldest family-owned and operated candy producing companies in the country.  

The Sweet's Candy Company discovered the unusual cinnamon chocolate combination back in 1994 and caught candy lovers by surprise with the new spicy, sweet combination. Sweet's Candy Company president, Richard Kay admits that while demand is high, supply is limited; even though Sweet's Candy now produces nearly one million pounds of chocolate cinnamon bears for distribution around the globe each year.  

Chocolate Cinnamon Bear Candy is Unique to it's Home State

The chocolate cinnamon bear joins the ranks of Utah's unusual favorites like fry sauce, a wide array of Jello concoctions, funeral potatoes, and heavenly scones. While not everyone is a fan of all of Utah's favorites, one thing is certain, if you are a sweet-heat lover, you're going to love Sweet's chocolate covered cinnamon bears. Sweet's Candy Company hold the hearts of all Utahns by producing amazing candy, made with only the best ingredients and by using old-world manufacturing methods.  

How Are Chocolate Cinnamon Bears Made?

The magic happens at the Sweet's Candy factory located in SLC, Utah. Sweet's Candy offers the public free tours of their factory and through the years many of Utah's schoolchildren have been delighted by the Willy Wonka-like experience. There are designated rooms for each of the different candy making processes like the jelly bean room, the taffy room and the chocolate enrobing room where spicy little red bears get their chocolate covering.

  • First cinnamon bears ride along a massive conveyor belt, as long as a football field.
  • The conveyor belt takes the little guys for a ride under a chocolate waterfall.
  • They continue their journey on the conveyor to be cooled to just the right temperature.
  • Lastly, these crave-able little bears are bagged for distribution to grocery stores, retailers and through the Sweet's website for delivery directly to your front door.

Sweet's Chocolate Sticks Now Made with Real Fruit Juice

In 1940 Jack Sweet wanted to expand Sweet Candy’s chocolate offering.  He came up with the idea of covering sweet and tangy orange jelly in rich luscious milk chocolate, and thus the Chocolate Orange Stick was born.  Over the years Chocolate Sticks have become a part of countless family traditions.  Many people recount stories of waking up every Christmas with a box of Orange Sticks in their stockings; a tradition they have passed down to their children.  What began with Orange has grown to new flavors including Raspberry, Cherry, and Blueberry.
