“If you are looking for an interesting way to see Chicago, don’t miss Chicago Candy Tours. Chef Jenny not only knows the history of candy and chocolate, she also shares information about local food/restaurants and architecture. She doesn’t sugar-coat the stories of competition among candy makers or the loss of Marshall Field’s beloved Frango Mints to Macy. She provides wonderful samples to supplement her considerable knowledge. ” -Laurie from South Carolina
