Queen Anne Cordials: Our Cordial Legacy
For over 80 years, Queen Anne® Cordial Cherries have been a favorite confection and remains the #1 brand of cordial cherries in the US.
It all began in 1921 with a trio of partners on Chicago’s South Side, when friends Herman Glickman, Harry Martin and Max Weiss founded a chocolate confection company. The partners shared a devout love for rich chocolate, enrobed caramel, nuts and marshmallows, along with other specialty chocolates.
In 1948, the company introduced the first Queen Anne® Cordial Cherry – it began with 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 and a new tradition of enjoying them was born.
Queen Anne made its triumphant return to Chicago in 2006 when World’s Finest® Chocolate, the venerable three-generation family-owned and operated chocolate company, acquired the brand. World’s Finest Chocolate is recognized for using only the finest ingredients to deliver a perfect balance of flavor, texture, richness and color in every chocolate bite.
World’s Finest Chocolate proudly continues the Queen Anne cordials tradition having developed unique flavor profiles unlike anyone else: Coconut, French Vanilla, Black Cherry Cola and Blueberry. Whether for holiday family gatherings, birthday celebrations, graduations or special dinners, our cordial cherries are an indulgence everyone loves. Queen Anne is the classic treat that connects you to cherished memories and inspires you to make new ones.
