Fruit flavored gummy bears in assorted colors



It feels good to indulge now and then. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, there are tons of great options here in San Antonio. Let’s take a look at three local candymakers you’ll want to visit right away.

Alamo Candy Co.

This family-owned business opened its doors in 1991 and hasn’t looked back since! Alamo Candy offers a breadth of sugar confections that titillate the taste buds, including Mexican candies, American candies, and Chinese candies – all made fresh daily. And don’t forget to try the Picositas and Chamoy Pickles.

Alamo City Chocolate Factory

Nothing hits the spot like fresh-made chocolate, and the good people at Alamo City Chocolate Factory have been perfecting their offerings for over a decade. From molded chocolates (we’re particularly fond of the chocolate cowboy boots – can we wear them?) to a variety of assorted boxes, this chocolate factory’s offerings will send chocoholics into a frenzy.

Lolli & Pops

Lolli & Pops is such a cute name for a candy shop, how could we not put it on the list? This sweet store stocks international candy, retro candy, and their own brand of goods, like their uniquely flavored cotton candy. We’re not sure how we’ve gone all our lives without Berry Prosecco Cotton Candy – thankfully, Lolli & Pops has us covered!

Happy Snacking!
