Pease's has been an institution in Springfield for at least 60 years, which should tell you something. Everything is wonderful, and the staff know all about everything. No matter why you're in town, follow these simple steps: (1) go to Pease's (2) Buy candy. (3) Eat it. (4) Share it, but only if you must.

A cute local candy store with some really yummy treats. They have beautiful chocolates as well as your standard chocolate treats. The chocolate itself is delicious and worth the calories. My son loved the chocolate pennies and Lincoln heads.

So I was going to go here from a review I saw. The old location was across the street from the old capitol building. But they moved. Their new address is 1701 s state, springfield il. It's about 10 minutes away but I'm glad I went. Really awesome chocolates, mixed nuts old time soda and flavored popcorn and penny candies.... More

This is where generations of Springfieldians have obtained their "penny candies". Wonderful chocolates. Try their Raggedy Anns! Great carmels. Great pop corn. In season pick up a carmel apple or their chocolate covered strawberries. A real treat.

Great local candy shop. Chocolate Lincoln pennies, white chocolate dipped Lincoln logs (pretzels) are a few candy options with a nod to the city's favorite son. A variety of gift options for all holidays.

The candy is all homemade but a little expensive. Been in Springfield a long time. Unfortunately, they are moving some of their operations to the St. Louis are.

My husband and I stumbled across Pease's downtown location on our recent trip to Springfield. Located very close to the Lincoln Museum and Library, it's a perfect stop to pick up locally made chocolates and popcorn. We absolutely loved the Presidential Squares, which are pretzel and caramel, topped with delicious dark chocolate and a light sprinkle of sea salt. They... More
