Illinois Nut and Candy Review & Giveaway



So yummy. I'm not usually a big chocolate eater. I like it, but it's not something I crave. I LOVE candy however, any kind of candy is my weakness. I just love it.
I received a sample pack from Illinois Nut and Candy. I was able to review a Sample pack that had some toffee and some barks, I was also able to review Chocolate covered Marshmallows. These were the BEST

 The chocolate covered marshmallows were divine and I would say were the best candy I've had in a LONG time. They were so yummy. It was 2 giant marshmallows per stick covered in chocolate and some sprinkles. Yummy

The Toffee was also very good. I love toffee so when I saw that my box was half toffee half everything else I was very delighted. Avery ate the fruit and nut chocolate as that's not for me. But everything else was so good and tasty. They used the best chocolate.
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. 

Yummy!!
Price: Obviously this ranges, but I find the items to be very decently priced. The chocolate covered marshmallows are $3.75 each! Pound of Toffee is $17. I don't think these are too bad!

Overall: ***** So good and tasty. They were sent with an ice pack also so my chocolate wasn't all melted. Yum


 *Disclaimer* I received these products directly from the Company for Review. I was not paid to try out these products!*
