Candy Corner


Candy Corner is the number one source of quality candies and chocolates in the Philippines. Our products are sourced and hand picked from all over the world to bring Filipinos the very best that the confectionery world has to offer.

Candy Corner is the first retail outlet in the Philippines to combine traditional packaged and novelty confectionery with the concept of customers’ choosing and combining their own selection of sweets. The first Candy Corner store in Glorietta 2 was opened in October 1996. The business grew most during the economic turmoil of 1997 and 1998 with growths of over 300% both in volume and sales.

Today, with 20 years of experience in the confectionery retail trade, we are proud to have a total of 100 outlets nationwide, of which 90 are company-owned.
