The Cerreta Candy Company was founded 40 years ago by Jim Cerreta, Sr. when he moved to Glendale, Arizona, from Ohio where he learned the candy making trade in his father-in-law's factory. The company is now in its 4th generation of the Cerreta family with his sons and grandsons working in the factory.

The factory has a daily tour and demonstration where kids get to try their hand at making various chocolate concoctions. The family was very kind in allowing me 'behind the wall' to take some VRs during the tour.

Cerreta's is always our first stop whenever we go to Phoenix where we load up with their various treats at their factory store.

Definitely my kind of job.....

Additional info: the Rabbit is 150 lbs of caramel corn. The chocolate football is 350 lbs of chocolate and peanuts, the green 'Cowboy Gumby' is 200 lbs of creme de menthe chocolate, and the pallet under the white chocolate baseball is 2,500 lbs of custom 10 lb milk chocolate bricks produced by the Guittard Chocolate Co. in San Francisco, California. The machine behind it produces 1,000 chocolate candies per minute.
