Our Chicago Candy Tour was a blast. Jennifer knows her sweets and is a candy and Chicago historian. Learned things I never knew about the sweets I grew up with and love so much. We went to several shops, all welcoming and pleased to see Jennifer. We engaged in conversation with shop owners and workers. Samples were a bonus treat. A must see if you are spending time in the city…Thanks Jennifer!

If you are looking for something fun, educational, and on the “sweet side,” you will enjoy the “Chicago Candy Tours” with Chef Jennifer Lewis. Chef Jennifer met my friend Mary, from Boston, and myself, I am from Jersey, downtown. We visited several candy stores, each with its own unique history. We sampled at every candy store and Chef Jennifer even presented us with a selection of fine taffy and chocolates. Not only do you visit the candy/chocolate shops but you are receiving a mini tour of downtown.

“The Sweet Chicago Candy tour will probably be the most memorable thing during my visit to Chicago. From the start, Jenny asked us about our experience in Chicago and tailored the tour to how much we knew about the city and it’s sweet history.

Over the 90 minutes, we stopped at several candy stores and at each one Jenny generously bought us a unique type of candy for us to sample as we walked (or to save for later!). We had some traditional Italian chocolate, imported candy from Japan, licorice, and more as we learned about the history and production of candy in Chicago and around the world.

My friend and I were coming from out of town so didn’t know much about Chicago and so Jenny worked in several stops along the way with interesting buildings (like the Chicago Tribune Tower with rocks from famous landmarks around the world) to teach us about the city’s history.

I’ve already recommended this tour to friends and family and will continue to do so when anyone tells me they’re visiting Chicago. It’s great for all ages and would make an amazing afternoon activity for a family (even as a way to learn how to get around downtown Chicago). I learned so much about candy and Chicago and I can’t recommend this enough.”
