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.
Illinois Nut & candy generously sent me 3 taffy apples to review! Now I have never been that big of a fan of taffy apples. Yea they’re delicious, but they’re messy and they hurt my teeth and the list goes on. Boy oh boy was a surprised with these taffy apples! Now I do not see the exact ones I received on the site and I devoured them before I could even take a picture! OOPPSS!!!
The first absolutely scrumptious taffy apple was a granny smith apple covered in caramel then covered in chocolate and rolled in orange nonpareils. The apple was huge! I actually cut it up into 4 pieces and shared it with my family. When I first looked at the apple I thought it was only chocolate and sprinkles. I was super delighted when i cut into it and found a delishly thick layer of caramel!
The second apple I tried was caramel rolled in nuts, just like your typical taffy apple. Very traditional, but very delish!!
The third apple was covered in caramel then dipped in chocolate with an orange possibly white chocolate starburst design on top. I mean you can’t go wrong with that!
One of the best parts of these apples are not only are they delicious, but the caramel is dairy free! Awesome!
They have lots of interesting creations like the Deluxe Smore Apple! This apple is covered in caramel, dipped in chocolate and then graham crackers are pressed on the outside! Ok, now who needs a napkin to wipe of the drool??? I know I do!
