Food/Drink Items Made in Chicagoland

I am trying to put goody bags together for friends that are traveling to Chicago with us. I am trying to come up with items to put in the goody bags that will not spoil, so no meats. Any suggestions on things that are readily available that I can put in these goody bags. Oh, I live in Ann Arbor Michigan so things that I might be able to purchase here before we travel to Chicago. Hoping to make it a fun bag.

I'm not sure all of these still have a presence in Chicago but you can click on the individual company name and see what is made in Chicago
