Fannie May's candy is delicious! The store is very simply laid out. Not a lot of clutter. The service was great. There are many gift Ideas, too.

Maybe it's from growing up in the Midwest, but seems to be that it's pretty hard to beat Fannie May. At least in this range of really good (not la-de-da gourmet fancy confections) chocolate. Take home as much as you can carry and/or afford. The...More

Sorry, but Fannie May doesn't have the wow factor of Schwartz Out of this World Chocolates in Carle Place, NY or Jacques Torres Chocolate, NYC. If given the choice between Hershey's and Fannie May, I'd choose Hershey's. Still, being in the tourist area, it's a...More

Nice place to stop by and choose some Chicago gifts - pretty tins with the pictures of Chicago on with chocolate inside. Also good for ice-cream and milkshakes.
