Americans Rejoice, Haribo Is Opening A Factory In The US

Anyone in the United States with a sweet tooth will have to brush just a little bit harder now that Haribo is opening a factory in the US.

The German candy maker, best known for producing iconic fruit-flavored gummy bears, announced that plans to build their first production facility in the United States. While there has been a sales office located in Maryland since 1982, this new factory will give the candy product the rights to boast that they’re Made in the US on their packaging.

According to Fortune, local production on the factory is set to begin in 2020. “America’s Dairyland,” also known as the state of Wisconsin, will host the new facility.

As we patiently wait for the factory to arrive, the sky will fill with the deafening screams of gummy bears between our molars. Hey, they’re addicting.
