Zingerman’s has long been known for hunting down the world’s most interesting flavors. Zingerman’s Candy Manufactory’s retail selection has been expertly curated to deliver the world’s most interesting quality confections. 

In addition to Zingerman’s coveted candy line of gourmet candy bars and peanut brittle, here’s a peek at the tastes our guests’ thrill-chasing taste buds can encounter in the shop’s retail space:

  • Korean Chili Flakes: The same Korean chili flakes from Epices de Cru that Miss Kim uses in its Tteokbokki are featured in our sweet chili peanut recipe 
  • Red Poppy Flower: Hard sweets from Kubli; – a flavor popular to 1920’s France!
  • 100% Chocolate: For eating, not baking (really!)
