ATTN: Dear friends and fans. We are temporarily disabling the ability to finalize orders on our website effective now (11:30 a.m. April 3) through the afternoon of Monday, April 6.

If you still wish to "shop" online with us during that time, all of the items you select will be saved in your cart and you may be able to finalize your purchase Monday, after 12 p.m.

We are so very short-staffed right now as we maintain standards of social distancing, and safety, that we have to take a pause on online order-taking so that we can fulfill the orders that have already come in.

We have to assess the stock we have left AND our very limited ability to produce so that next week we don't promise you something that we will have no ability to fulfill.

Please understand - we WILL have candy left next week. We just don't have a clear picture at this moment of which candy is "spoken" for and which will be available. We need a pause so that we can do the homework to figure that out. If we can turn the site back on fully before Monday, we will. So check back!

This situation also all means that we will be running low and out of some products. So, in order to serve you best, when the website does come back on for ordering, we ask that you please indicate in the "comments" box at check out if you are open to substitutions in your order.

If you do not indicate that substitutions are acceptable, we will refund you for whatever items are out of stock and ship the balance of your order. You will be notified via email of the refunded items.

Thank you all, again, from everyone here at Anderson's Candy Shop. We can not tell you how it breaks our heart to have to suspend ordering ability for a few days, but we are committed to only promising what we can actually deliver to you. Please understand we are working as hard as we can and will continue to do so!

We realize this move will clog our phone lines, so we also ask that you be patient with us if you are trying to call in, as we try to navigate these uncharted waters.

Thank you again from all of us here at Anderson's Candy Shop. Have a safe, healthy and Blessed Easter,
Leif Anderson and all of my teammates

Welcome to

At Anderson's Candy Shop in Richmond, Illinois, we've been making quality fudges, caramels, truffles and chocolate candies for four generations.

You may know us from the Sandwich or other local County Fairs, or maybe as the favorite candymakers of WGN
 Radio! Either way, we're glad you're here.

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.

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're happy you found us, and we look forward to helping you make our family tradition one of your own.

- The Anderson Family
