Zingerman's Candy Manufactory

Charlie Frank is the man  behind the sweet and amazing Zingerman’s Candy Manufactory.  After studying at the Culinary Institute of America and working as a pastry chef in many kitchens, Charlie realized what he was in love with was working with sugar. He began working at Zingerman’s managing their pastry department.  He soon came to the realization that Zingerman’s was the place where he would fulfill his sugar coated dreams.  After 7 years of hard work and dedication, the ZZang! Bar was born and as they say, the rest is history.

I first learned of Zingerman’s while I was in culinary school at Johnson & Wales University in Denver, Colorado.  After graduation, I went to work at Cook’s Fresh Market.  The owners, Kristy & Ed Janos were from Michigan. As Zingerman’s was the local gourmet food market in Michigan, I heard a lot about it. Fast forward 15 years and my friend Christine surprised me with these bars. She is very particular about the quality of the products she comes, especially her sweets.  I knew Zingerman’s Candy Bars were going to  be a hit and their whimsical packaging doesn’t hurt either!
