What our customer have said on the Intuit Love Your Local Business
I love this store because whenever I need something sweet and delicious I know just where to go! There is always something wrapped and ready to go OR helpful staff to select just the right gift for every age. A delicious experience.
I love this store because the customer service is superb, the selection fantastic and delicious, and no one does non-dairy Taffy Apples as well as they do. They also carry a lot of goodies that are a bit harder to find for a kosher consumer. YUM!!!
I love these guys been there once and they gave us a once and a lifetime experience. Catering to the wants/needs of the less fortunate of us that cant have the good stuff chocolate candy and allowing us to tour the beautiful store.
The owner is always looking to keep his store looking fresh and exciting. My kids love going there, just to see what new candy he''s trying out. He''s even added soft-serve ice cream! Special orders/custom gift baskets are easy as pie.

I love Illinois Nut & Candy because in addition to having great sweets, they also support the community. For the past 3 years they have been a sponsor of the fundraiser at the nonprofit I work for. What a joy to have an area business that cares! raerae (01.11.10)

Galactosemia.There are not enough words to describe the look on our childrens faces when they realize they can actually eat chocolate and candy and not be afraid they will get sick.
Illinois Nut & Candy is a jewel. Like an old style hardware store with a zillion bins of things to explore and great people to help explain things. Quality and service are alive and well in this great store. Bob (01.10.10)
Illinois Nut & Candy offers a fantastic variety of delicious treats for people like me, who are unable to digest dairy. David is so kind and generous to PGC - Some people who have NEVER tasted chocolate candies and other treats! Awesome company!
Illinois Nut and Candy provides fantastic service to my company! They helped me to design a custom THANK YOU gift for my clients that stands out from the typical gifts! Their quality is outstanding!
I have met David at several business-to-business events, and I have to say, Illinois Nut and Candy has the sweetest business cards you''ll ever eat! What a great idea! Larry (01.08.10) Candy is fresh. Attractive entryway and displays. Wide variety. Good Pricing.
I became a fan of Illinois Nut & Candy when my mother was ill with cancer. One of her favorite indulgences was chocolate covered apricots. David specially made them for us so we could cheer Mom up after chemo treatments. We are forever grateful!
David comes up with incredible ideas for my events - he is very generous in providing samples and a pleasant man to work with
Illinois Nut & Candy chocolate confections are heaven in your mouth! In addition to delicious candy David has graciously donated each year to a local fundraiser I host. From tasty options to gift certificates he never forgets to add a little ?sweet?!
It is a great place to find the nuts and candy that our family was looking for. They were very helpful in my selection of the items I needed for my self and shipping to another family member.
GREAT candy and service, and it''s all KOSHER! Every year, I send my Daughter (attending the U.S. Naval Academy) a big box of chocolate and candy (birthday) from Illinois Nut. I can testify that they are the favorite candy store of the U.S. Navy! Willlong (01.08.10)

This place DOES look like candyland, and it even has chocolate pianos! Great for corporate gifts, diabetic candy for my dad, anything you might ever want. Check it out! jkelly (01.08.10)
This is such a community-friendly business. My kids went there on a school field trip and had a blast. Going there is always a treat, and the staff are always wonderful We''re so glad they''re just down the street!
They have the most delicious candy and they are so nice to deal with.
This candy store makes me feel like I?m in the Willy Wonka film. From the ?Candyland? inspired entrance to the owner asking if my child wants a S-U-C-K-E-R (graciously spelling it out in case I say no), it is a wonderful, family-friendly experience. andrea (01.07.10)

I just got the basket of goodies ... oh my gosh, that is awesome. Love the purple! My co-workers are fighting over the sweets!
I''m excited for tomorrow. Halloween is killing attendance, but the crowd will look good in purple!
You're SO handy to have nearby
I live only blocks from you, and am frequently invited to be a dinner guest over the weekend at families nearby. With you so close, there''s nothing to even think about when buying a little dinner gift. I go into your store, am always assured of something delicious to buy and BOOM, I''ve got my gift. It''s as easy as that! (The difficulty is not opening what I buy and eating it myself before I hand it to the friend who has invited me!)
Thanks for being there.
I want to thank you for putting together the magnificent favors. The candy is delicious and the boxes are beautiful. I''ve received so many compliments, and was happy to have a few extras for me!!
It was a pleasure working with you, and I appreciate all your help.
chocolate is so rich and tasty
I brought the big box of chocolate to work with me tonight. All the nurses and residents have said that the chocolate is so rich and tasty.
And I agree with this statement.
It was a pleasure...
It was a pleasure speaking with you today. I could not thank you and your company enough for sharing your chocolates with us at the conference for Parents of Galactosemic Children. Honestly, for me a was a wonderful and exciting treat because at age 46, I have never been able to eat chocolate! While family and friends ate M&M''s, chocolate candy bars, etc., I would eat mostly hard candies, like suckers and mints.
Until two weeks ago, I never knew what chocolate candy tasted like. But after sampling your dairy-free chocolates, I could not resist purchasing a couple of pounds. Since returning from PA, I have ordered several types of your candies.
I was generous to share a couple of pieces with my husband and my parents, who each told me your chocolate candy tastes very good.
Because you sell both milk chocolate and dairy-free chocolate candy, I have e-mailed your website address to all my family members and several friends.
Thank you, again! I really love your dairy-free chocolate!!!
Everything was perfect, pretty and scrumptious!

You did a great job
I picked up my order last week. You did a great job, and I am very happy with your work. My brother and my guests were impressed.
Thanks a lot

I just wanted to thank you for the great job during the holidays in getting orders out and tracking numbers to me so I can update my customers.
This does pay off, I just received this email from a happy customer.
You received my order on Saturday, shipped it on Sunday, and it''s scheduled to be delivered by UPS this Thursday. Excellent job, wonderful doing business with you. If your chocolates are as good as your service, I''ll be ordering from you regularly and will tell others about your company as well.
