About Us

Checkmates Confectionery Company is the sales and marketing division of Chipurnoi Incorporated, a third-generation family business that pioneered the introduction of European specialty foods and confectionery products into the American market during the early part of the last century.

Today the Company produces a diverse range of individually wrapped miniature candies at partner facilities in Italy where every effort is made to ensure the highest level of quality and consumer satisfaction.

Our product range consists of GLITTERATI hard candies, PUNTINI gourmet jujubes and long time favorite, CHIPS pastilles, all of which are also available in Sugar Free versions.

For over 75 years, we have endeavored to offer confectionery products that are out of the ordinary in terms of originality and quality…candy specialties whose distinctive characteristics will continue to ensure their place in the market for years to come.

While two of our brands, CHIPS and PUNTINI, have long been available through specialty confectionery outlets, other Checkmates candies are used primarily as complimentary amenities in fine restaurants, hotels, clubs and other select establishments.

Now, it is our pleasure to offer all of these distinctive, sometimes hard-to-find, candies directly to you through our on-line store. We hope that this web site will enable you to purchase our many fine products with confidence and ease.
