Illinois Nut & Candy Co. Review...

We recently had the chance to review a few treats from Raising the Candy Bar and Illinois Nut & Candy Co.
About Illinois Nut & Candy:
"Raising the Candy Bar is the latest addition to Illinois Nut & Candy Home of Fantasia Confections. For over a quarter of a century Illinois Nut & Candy formerly Illinois Nut Outlet has been doing just that raising the bar. Since September 2004 Melissa and David's goal has been to constantly raise the candy bar by not only being the largest Kosher candy store in the Midwest but by trying to be the largest niche candy store as well. We offer Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Sugar Free, Organic, Vegan Friendly - all under Kosher supervision.
We have over 600 confections from apple rings to zebra bark. Our expansive selections of nuts are freshly roasted and our dried fruits come from around the world. Our highly trained chocolatiers combined with their experience and our valued recipes have given us world renowned confections such as our own hand made English Toffee as well as our Taffy Apples. Our chocolate confections include miniatures filled with crèmes, barks, dipped glazed fruit, turtles, rocky road bars, and two separate lines of truffles our traditional line and our signature line for the more discriminating pallets. All of our chocolates are available in both a smooth creamy milk chocolate and in a rich semi sweet chocolate. What truly separates us is our commitment to customer service. Our goal is to make your experience a sweet one!"

What we thought: The chocolate treats we sampled were scrumptious! The assorted truffles were absolutely decadent and indulgent, not to mention beautifully crafted! Each one was like a little piece of chocolate bliss:) The kiddos really enjoyed the heart lollipops. They had never gotten to experience a chocolate lollipop before and A said it was the best lollipop she had ever tasted. 2 yr old D didn't say much of anything, but his chocolate covered mouth spoke volumes:) The variety at this candy store is pretty impressive...they have a lot more than just superior specialty chocolates. The variety of goodies for Valentine's Day is pretty awesome so if you're looking for a sweet treat for your sweetheart, check out their online store!
