At Anderson’s Candy Shop in Richmond, Illinois, we’ve been making quality fudges, caramels, truffles and chocolate candies for more than 100 years!  

Our main store and production center is located in McHenry County, just north of the Chicago suburbs. Our shop sits on Route 12 between beautiful Crystal Lake, IL and Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

We have a shop in Barrington and also wholesale at various locations in Wisconsin and Illinois. You may also know us from the Sandwich or other local County Fairs, or maybe as the favorite candymakers of WGN Radio! 

We have been named among the best candy makers in the U.S. and North America by sources like the L.A. Times and Consumer’s Digest. AND, we are very happy you found us! We look forward to helping you make our family tradition one of your own.
