Blommer Chocolate Store

Food in West Loop & Near West Side

Often in the Loop, a smell wafts through that’s so enticing you’d almost 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 such as Zots, Pop Rocks and Zagnut bars.
