No treat induces nostalgia quite like candy. Even the best ice cream shops in Chicago, though of course delicious, can't compare to the sweet rush of unwrapping bars of chocolate, rafts of sour gummies or foil-covered caramels; plus, now that you're an adult, you can upgrade your drugstore candies to luxe, booze-spiked truffles. Best of all, it's a dessert fit for all seasons, whether you're swiping a lollipop from the trick-or-treat pile, wandering around summer fairs with a mound of cotton candy or ordering piles of dark chocolate peppermint brittle for Christmas in Chicago. Indulge your inner kid (or hey, maybe even the actual kids in your life) at the best candy shops in Chicago.
