Taste of Home says that the best candy store in Indiana is Albanese Candy Factory in Merrillville. The highlight of this candy store can be summed up in two words. Here's what Taste of Home says:

Two words: Free Samples. At <a href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" data-name="" data-module="content engagement" data-position="embedded links">Albanese Candy Factory</a>, they firmly believe in “try before you buy” so you’ll want to taste test what they’ve deemed to be the world’s best gummies. Afterward, tour the gummy plant to see where all those bears and worms are made.

Albanese Candy Factory offers thousands of options including bulk candy, nostalgic candy, nuts and mixes, gift items, and of course the World’s Best Gummies and Chocolates.
