Andes has recently expanded into the baker's kitchen with Andes Crème de Menthe Baking Chips and Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips offering the same great taste and three-layered designs as their full-sized snacking namesakes.
Andes Candies was founded in Chicago, Illinois in 1921 by Andrew Kanelos. Originally called Andy's Candies, the business produced a variety of boxed chocolates which it sold from a small Chicago storefront. The business grew to include 150 stores. With the expansion of the business, a factory was built to supply the stores, and the name was changed to Andes Candies.
Andes joined the Tootsie family in 2000, expanding its line in 2003 to include Crème de Menthe baking chips. Seasonal Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips were added in 2005.
