I had a super fun time this past week at the candy show that was held at the McCormick Place. There were many attendees, ranging from candy suppliers, buyers, and super heroes. I even got to take a picture with Batman and Wonder Woman.

I found some awesome Lolli Pops to add to our collection for you. The store now has some super Yummy Lix and some super Blow Pops! The Yummy Lix Lolli Pops include fun and new flavors ranging from Cherry Cheesecake to Banana Split.

With Father’s Day approaching, don’t forget to get your dad a super gift. You can customize a super gift with our Spell-It-Out-In-Chocolate Boxes, which includes a 5-by-5 grid with your special message.
