Philly’s long legacy in the candy industry lives on today in candy shops selling chocolates, lollipops, licorice, jelly beans, and other sugary treats in the city and suburbs, including some original makers.
In Old City, the building that houses Shane Confectionery has been home to a candy manufacturer since 1863 (the Berley brothers of Franklin Fountain fame took it over in 2011).
