Our Company

DeMet’s Candy Company makes some of America’s most beloved chocolate indulgences. We make timeless classics like TURTLES®. We also make irresistible sensations like FLIPZ® candy coated pretzels, and TREASURES® filled chocolates. In fact, we make such incredibly delicious candies and snacks that we like to say DeMet’s Makes Mmmmmm.

DeMet’s Candy Company takes great pride in using the finest quality ingredients to create world-class products. From baking our own pretzels and wafers fresh everyday to sourcing premium chocolates, nuts, and caramel, DeMet’s chooses only the best ingredients.

The best ingredients combined with traditional, time-tested recipes—that’s the DeMet’s way. It has been ever since George DeMet opened up his very first candy store way back in 1898.

Today, we’re a bit bigger than that original store. In fact, we just opened a brand new, state-of-the-art production facility in Big Flats, N.Y. The 100,000-sq.-ft. facility houses all candy making operations for the TURTLES® brand. The new facility allows us to produce more than 20 million pounds of product annually!


DeMet’s Candy Company was originally started in 1898 as a candy store business and soda fountain shop by George DeMet of Chicago.
