“Satisfy your sweet tooth on Michigan Avenue!”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

While combing the Miracle Mile, don't forget to stop in for a true piece of Midwestern charm. Unlike other commercial candy companies, Fannie May still puts copious amounts of chocolate on their chocolates. What a concept! You can buy individual pieces of your favorite that normally comes in an assorted box (mine is mil-chocolate coated buttercreme). A quick trip inside the store provides rocket fuel for your shopping adventure!

“A Chicago Institution of Sweets”
Reviewed 21 October 2011

Fannie May Candies is as Chicago as deep dish pizza. Think of it as the See's Candies of the Midwest. I've been eating this stuff since I was a kid and my Chicago relatives always have a box or two at their houses. No Chicago trip of mine would be complete without stopping in a shop and getting something sweet.

They are known for their chocolates, but have a variety of candies. I would highly suggest the Mint Meltaways- the perfect chocolate mint; or the butter-cream candies, almond bark, and pixies would make a perfect souvenir or sweet snack. Enjoy!
