About Frankford Candy

Frankford Candy was founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1947 as a manufacturer of seasonal chocolate products. In 1994 Frankford Candy began expanding its brand portfolio through licensing partnerships, expanding beyond chocolate into a broad range of everyday and seasonal confections.

My Review:
We are big fans of licorice in our house. When I heard that Welch's jelly was coming out with a licorice, I thought well that fits. We love Welch's jelly and I am sure the licorice would be great as well. We could not wait to try this.  Licorice with a filling? That has to be good. Welch’s has a strawberry and grape flavored filled licorice. My family were big fans of each flavor, they were great because they tasted like real fruit, not like a chemically sweet plastic like licorice I have had in the past.  The Frankford Candy did a great job combining the Welch’s jelly flavor and gave it a great licorice taste.  It is great to support a local company like this, the Frankford Candy is based right here in Philadelphia! It would be great if they had factory tours, I would love to see the candy made.

These are great snacks that I reckoned, they are unlike any snack I have ever had. When you bite into one of these licorice sticks, the smooth inside is an additional burst of fruit flavor. My daughter just loved both, but the grape was a particular favorite. If you are looking for a different candy snack why not  give Welch's  Filled Licorice a try for your family.
