Queen Anne Cordials: Our Cordial Legacy
For over 65 years, Queen Anne® has been a favorite confection and remains America’s#1 brand of cordial cherries.
In 1921, on Chicago’s South Side, a trio of partners, Herman Glickman, Harry Martin and Max Weiss founded a chocolate confection company. The friends shared a devout love for rich chocolate, enrobed caramel, nuts and marshmallows.
In 1948 the company introduced the first Queen Anne® Cordial Cherry – a whole Maraschino cherry, suspended in a creamy center and enrobed with smooth milk chocolate. The unmistakably delicious Queen Anne® Cordial Cherries quickly became the company’s most successful product, offering a perfect balance of flavor, texture, richness and color. A distinctive American classic treat was born.
Queen Anne® made its triumphant return to Chicago in 2006 when World’s Finest® Chocolate, the venerable 75-year old family-owned and operated chocolate company acquired the brand. World’s Finest® Chocolate is recognized for using only select, premium ingredients and modern machinery. Dedicated employees deliver the ultimate American-made chocolates.
World’s Finest® Chocolate proudly continues the Queen Anne® Cordials tradition by developing unique flavor profiles: Blueberry, French Vanilla and Black Cherry Cola. Whether for holidays, family gatherings, birthday celebrations, graduations or special dinners, our cordial cherries are an indulgence everyone anticipates. Queen Anne is the classic treat that connects you to cherished memories and inspires you to make new ones. Please be sure to sign up for The Royal Update – the official e-newsletter of Queen Anne!
