Parting is such sweet sorrow
After 14 sweet years, and as of November 1, 2020, we have closed our Chicago store and candy kitchen, and will not make or sell our candy until further notice. We are taking a brief hiatus from candy making to explore ways to increase production our signature La-Dee-Dahs.
Thanks to all of our wonderful, generous customers for your patronage over the years. If you have an account on our website, we will keep you updated through our WhimsyGram emails on when La-Dee-Dahs will be available again.

Best wishes for your good health and happiness!
A lifelong love of candy
Hi! We are Whimsical Candy®, Chicago's fun original artisan candy. Our company is based on a lifelong love of candy—our founder at age three packed her little pink suitcase and tried moving to a candy store. Now a trained pastry chef, she makes small batch sweets that blend a grown-up taste for quality with the fun and classic flavors of childhood candy.
Artisanal candy that’s pure fun
Our products are handmade with fresh, natural ingredients. We make the candy we want to eat—chewy, satisfying textures and full, balanced flavors. Who says artisanal candy has to be serious?
“I visit Whimsical Candy quite often and I always have such a wonderful experience. The owner takes great pride in her products and they’re always fresh. I love it there!”
“Their handmade candy is incredible and are a unique gift item that a recipient is sure to love! Taste: A+ Originality: A+”
“Whimsical Candy has the best caramel apples in Chicago! They use perfect, creamy caramel and farmers’ market apples.”
“This was the best birthday party experience we’ve ever had! Watch out Whimsical Candy, all the kids want to celebrate their birthdays with you—so much fun!”
