Sate Your Sweet Tooth at Whimsical Candy

Artisan candy finds a home

whimsical candy!

You may recall the tale of a little girl who ran away to move into a candy store.

That girl, Chris Kadow-Dougherty, has grown up and finally stopped running. The Whimsical Candy founder’s first brick-and-mortar shop is now open in the loop — in an old candy factory, no less.

What drew us in from the start, chocolate-caramel-nougat La-Dee-Dahs, are now available in milk chocolate, almond, and coconut (peanut is coming soon).

Whimsical’s Whimsy Pies, pocket-size, dark chocolate cake rounds sandwiching silky Italian buttercream and salted caramel, launch today in limited quantities.

Snag a few and tie them up for a holiday gift, or follow Kadow-Dougherty’s advice and eat two for lunch.

In candy land, rules don’t apply.
