T.S. Mama Reviews

I found Illinois Nut & Candy's Fantasia Chocolates while researching natural chocolate companies. This particular company offers both the most unique and delicious confections I've found.

The Thrifty Things

Our plate included caramel turtles, chocolate covered pretzels, and English toffee. All I can say is Yum! This was delicious. One of the kids immediately sampled the Chocolate Covered pretzels. The combination of sweet, luscious chocolate and salty pretzel was melt in your mouth good. My favorite was the Caramel Turtles. 

From PDX w. Love

am a sucker for all things chocolate…OK, all but any with cherries, yuck! But I love chocolate, specially dark chocolate! The darkest the better, yumms! And I’ve been "chocolate wasted" (quote the movie and you get extra brownie points!) since Illinois Nuts & Candy gave me the opportunity of reviewing their Stripped Pretzels – English Toffee Bark and Caramel Party Plate! Oh, man have they been oh so yummy!

Shopping is serious business for most people. They want something and they go get it. When you've got a long list of things to buy, you don't want any distractions along the way.

Chocolate Almond Bark Review by Brixton Street Lifestyle Magazine

Well, it’s Valentine’s Day at last and although it’s more than just a little cliché, we just could not resist featuring something chocolate today. The chocolate we’ve handpicked to share with you is the almond bark ($14.99/lb) from Illinois Nut and Candy. Why this specific chocolate? 

Heart Shaped Lollipop Review by ABCD Diaries Blog

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.

Just in time for Valentine's Day by Closer to Lucy

"When I clicked into the Illinois Nut & Candy Raising the Candy Bar’s online store all those feel good I can almost smell it memories pop up like they were yesterday. An old-fashioned feel with contemporary considerations I couldn’t help but find myself on the tourist strip along the coastline, complete with the chocolate lollipop sculptures, popcorn balls, and toffee bark….mama was home!!

I was pleasantly surprised at the wonderful, friendly customer service, and speedy delivery. I received two very big apples, beautifully wrapped and ready for gift giving, but thankfully I had to taste them for my review. However, I did share them with my family.

Raising The Candy Bar has so many different choices it is hard to pick I love the advanced search feature on the website. Great feature for when you are looking for something special for someone with special dietary needs.
