At Ferrara Pan Candy Company, a sour face is a happy face. Best known for its venerable, mouth-puckering Lemonhead candies (500 million every year), Ferrara makes such other familiar treats as Red Hots, Jaw Busters, Boston Baked Beans, and Atomic FireBalls. Panned candies, so-called because they are made in a rotating pan, are the company's specialty; but it also makes chocolate confections under the Ferrara name, also with Black Forest Gummies. Ferrara started out in business making the pastel-colored sugar-coated almonds served at Italian weddings and expanded to serve the candy appetites of not just newlyweds, but kids (of all ages).
