About Us

Zitner’s Fine Confections isn’t just a candy company – it’s a Philadelphia legacy. Since 1922, we’ve been handcrafting confections that melt in your mouth and warm your heart. It all started with Sam and Annie Zitner, a couple passionate about chocolate and a knack for creating joy. They whipped up batches of their now-legendary creations in their North Philly garage, sharing them with friends and neighbors. Each creamy bite was infused with love, and soon, the sweet aroma of Zitner’s filled the streets, beckoning Philadelphians to their doorstep.

From Garage to Factory, Family to Family

As word spread, Sam and Anne knew they needed more space to share their magic. They moved to a factory on American Street, where the magic still happens today. Though the Zitners are no longer at the helm, their spirit lives on. The recipes remain guarded secrets, passed down through generations of candy makers who treat each piece with the same care and dedication as the founders.

A Taste of Tradition in Every Bite 

Our most beloved creation? The Butter Krak Egg. This ovoidal delight, bursting with coconut buttercream and enrobed in dark chocolate and toasted coconut, is synonymous with Easter in Philly. It’s a taste of childhood, a symbol of family gatherings, and a reminder of the simple pleasures that make life sweet. But Zitner’s is more than just Easter candy. We offer a delectable array of confections for every occasion, from melt-in-your-mouth truffles to rich caramel creams, crunchy barks, and brittle that shatters with joyful satisfaction.

Handcrafted with Heart, Shared with Love

Each piece of Zitner’s is a labor of love. We use only the finest ingredients, sourced with care and blended with precision—no artificial flavors, no shortcuts – just pure, unadulterated deliciousness. We pour our hearts into every batch because we know that candy isn’t just a treat; it’s a way to connect, celebrate, and create memories that last a lifetime.

So, when you reach for a Zitner’s confection, you’re not just indulging your sweet tooth; you’re savoring a taste of Philly history, family tradition, and the pure joy of homemade goodness. Welcome to Zitner’s – where sweet dreams are made of chocolate.
