Arcor- The Real Wonka Factory

If you're a fan of bin candy, root beer barrels or any number of other sweet treats you may be interested to know that many of your favorites are likely made in Argentina. There is a little town that was in the Cordoba mission when I was there called Arroyito. It's kind of a backwater place except for the gigantic candy factory. The factory is owned Arcor, a huge multinational candy company that started right there. Arcor actually stands for Arroyito Cordoba. They make a ton of gummi candies, fizzy candies, and fruit flavored hard candies. Sometimes they have different names for distribution purposes, but if you're lucky you will find wrappers from time to time that carry the Arcor logo.
