Candy corn, candy canes, chocolate hearts, jelly beans—these and other candies have long been a part of our culture and for many, a well-loved family tradition.

As confectioners create America’s favorite treats, they are working to deliver happiness responsibly.

  • Labeling: See how labels make responsible candy-buying easier.
  • Marketing: Learn about the care the industry takes in marketing.
  • Outreach: See how the industry is helping to produce chocolate sustainably, how candy companies are supporting their communities, and what NCA is doing to educate the public about healthful consumption of candy.
