If you love all things sweet, then you’ll love these three union-made, American-made items. Available in a wide variety of flavors, these treats are made by hardworking union members who are dedicated to quality. So go ahead and enjoy these great products and help support good middle class jobs!
Made by the proud members of the United Food and Commercial Workers (“UFCW”), Ghirardelli is all about delivering high quality chocolate in creative, decadent flavors. Its chocolate bars are available in delicious flavors such as Mint Cookie, Orange Filled, Gourmet Milk Sea Salt, and Intense Dark Espresso. The brand’s famous chocolate squares come in flavors like Toffee Crunch, Raspberry, Pumpkin Spice Caramel, and much more.
And best of all, Ghirardelli is available at prices significantly lower than other chocolates of comparable quality, such as those from world-renowned French and Belgian chocolatiers.
There’s something especially irresistible about Oreos. Maybe it’s the delicious type of chocolate used in the cookies. Or maybe it’s the contrast with the sweet filling. Either way, it’s almost impossible to have one and not want another.
The Oreo was first made in 1912 in Nabisco’s Chelsea factory in New York City and sold for a mere twenty-five cents a pound. Today, Oreos are produced in Richmond, Virginia by the skilled members of two unions – the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. The workers’ dedication to quality and consistency ensures that we get to enjoy these delicious cookies whenever we get a hunger for chocolaty creamy goodness!
Chocolate fudge cake. Donut cake. Deluxe French cheesecake. Donuts. Apple puffs.

Its founder began a tradition of refusing to compromise on quality and taste – a tradition that continues to this day. The next time you’re in the mood for a great dessert, try an Entenmann’s product and see the difference for yourself!
