Raising The Candy Bar.com REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY



"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."

Our Opinion: Wow! When I first received the package honestly I was just expecting your average taffy apple. Well that is not what I received. I received the Deluxe Mini M&M Taffy Apple for review. First off  it was wrapped so delicate and tied up with a ribbon, I almost didn't even want to open the apple, it was so beautiful. Couldn't just let it sit here forever though. The apple is covered in caramel, then coated with chocolate and then my favorite covered with M&M's. Believe me their is no skimping on their part, this apple is huge and just piled with goodies. The taste is incredible! Of course I picked all of the M&M's off and ate them and then I started in on the rest and I think the chocolate, caramel and apple all together is absolutely perfect.

A huge thank you to Raising The Candy Bar who has offered (1) of my readers the same Deluxe Mini M&M Taffy Apple that I received. Please leave a seperate comment for each entry. Leave an email address or make sure it is visible in your profile.
