Wow, does this bring back memories. I grew up less than a mile from that store. My dad bought chocolates for my Mom there, and what chocolates they were! Still the best I have ever tasted. My Mom's favorite--and mine--was the assortment of chocolate-covered nuts. Almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, and more drenched in the most delicious milk and dark chocolate. Just thinking about it, I can taste the richness and flavor. Nothing I've tasted since comes close. I always wondered why the store closed. It was a loss for Chicago.
