Blommer Chocolate Store information
Often in the Loop, a smell wafts through that’s so enticing you’d shoot your own mother in the kneecaps to get to it. It comes from Blommer Chocolate Factory, which provides the sweet stuff to big-time manufacturers such as Fannie May and Nabisco. Luckily, the wee attached store sells a line of Blommer’s own goodies straight to consumers.
The dark-chocolate-covered almonds reign supreme, and there’s a sweet selection of retro candies like Zots, Pop Rocks and Zagnut bars.
