And the winner is.....

Last year the Evanston Chamber of commerce had the inaugural Burger War.

We entered and with the help of our raving fans won the Award in the Creativity category. This year the Chamber expanded the competition to include with the Burger War the Salad Skirmish.

We love to put our creative skills on display so we entered the competition.  We competed against some of the top restaurants in town. I knew we could not win for the healthiest salad, but I hoped that we would win the Creative Category.

Well, after a month plus of voting the results were announce tonight at the Evanston Mash up.  We did not win the Creative category but we did win the Presentation Category.

So to my talented Chocolatiers I say great job. To the many who voted for our salad I say thank you for showing your support.

To the rest of you I say chocolate really is a vegetable just don't tell my kids that I said that.

The Life of the Candy man is sweet.

Have a sweet day!

Happy 9 Years

Its hard to believe that 9 years ago today my wife and I bought Illinois Nut. Since then  we have made many changes, received some great press locally, nationally and even internationally. Additionally we have won awards for our chocolates both on taste and creativity and even won an award for marketing along the way.

But none of this would have been possible without you our customers. So to all of you I say thank you for your past business and for your continued business. Because of you I can continue to say "Have a sweet day!"

The life of the candy man is sweet!

Have a sweet day!

PS --- please help us win the latest contest that we have entered the Evanston Salad Skirmish
You can vote once a day every day until the conclusion of the contest.
