We always get the same thing when we visit, the giant bag of Chicago mix. Chicago mix is cheese, carmel, and plain popcorn all mixed together and it is one of the best treats around. The big bag is 2 pounds and sells for $13...More

I had the best raspberry truffle here! $1.25 or 3/3.50. The place smells wonderful; happened by it on our way to the Green Line. Will definitely stop again.

I have been going to Candyland for MANY years. It smells so good and the products look so appealing!!! The Chicago Mix is my favorite popcorn. I am not a candy eater, but the candy looks so good in the cases.

The Chicago Mix popcorn is savory-sweet combo of butter, caramel, and cheddar cheese. Always fresh and warm, the popcorn is the real treat at Candyland. The handmade turtles are a hit as well. The large selection of old-fashioned candy and nuts by the pound is...More
