Rick's Roadshow: Chicago- Fannie May Pilgrimage

More from Rick's Roadshow: Chicago. The weather in Chicago today was quite perfect! The sun was shining and it was so pleasant to be out and about. I had booked myself in meetings virtually all day, but I had a short window in the early morning to make my faithful pilgrimage to the local Fannie May Candy Shop. Whenever I am back "home" in Chicago I make a trip to a Fannie May store- it's almost a religious experience for me. Anyway, as it turned out they had a huge sale on, so naturally I stocked up on some essentials, such as Colonial Assortments, Dark Vanilla Buttercreams,  Marshmallow with walnuts drenched in chocolate, some white chocolate for my brother, and some 70% dark chocolate squares for John. The kiddies will get some milk chocolate crayons and gummy fruit slices! Let's just say they will all be glad to see me this weekend! It was worth the trip, and I sure am happy now. Today I'm in meetings all day long, so don't expect much from me!

Oh man, Rick! You are really playing "down and dirty" now by posting about chocolates and then, to have the nerve to put up pictures of that Fanny Mae candy too! What really hurts is that I am in the midst this week of having severe cravings for sweets and especially chocolates too! Must tell myself not to look at pictures of food when you write about stuff like this!

Their Dark Vanilla Buttercreams are the BEST! And I just ADORE the Trinidads. We had a store in Nashville decades ago, but the mall where it was located died...

YUM!

At first I thought you were talking about the government lender!! I'd much rather read about chocolates -- hard centers, please!
