Naper Nuts & Sweets: Downtown Naperville’s Sweetest Business

naper nuts and sweets logoWhen you visit Naper Nuts & Sweets in downtown Naperville, the second you walk in the door you will be greeted with delicious smells of handmade chocolates and popcorn. You will also feel as if you’ve taken a step back in time to an old fashioned candy store of days gone by.

Whether you’re in the mood for homemade caramel corn, fudge, nostalgic candies, popular candies, or even an ice cream cone, this little hometown shop has everything you could possibly want and then some.

Naper Nuts & Sweets has being delighting residents with a sweet tooth since 1983. They offer a full line of caramel corn, popcorn, cheese corn, seasonal and everyday gift baskets, several flavors of decadent homemade fudge, delicious chocolate truffles, various gummy candies, and several nut selections. They also offer a full line of Jelly Bellies and specialty candies.

This local business also supports out troops overseas through their Operation Caramel Corn program. Naper Nuts & Sweets regularly ships packages of their delicious homemade caramel corn to U.S military persons serving overseas. The caramel corn is shipped in special red, white, and blue packages that reflect the patriotic spirit. There are some touching letters of appreciation that have been sent by soldiers who have received these care packages.

If you live in the Naperville area, be sure to check out this little gem of candy shop whenever visiting the downtown area. You can also use their website to order many of their great product offerings online. This is a good option for sending something sweet to a loved one who lives elsewhere.

Aside from the old fashioned atmosphere and the heavenly smells that dwell in this place, I love the look of the jars full of colorful, bulk candies. The displays of beautifully decorated homemade chocolate truffles looks almost as good as they taste. This is also a great place to get an ice cream cone with a swirl of flavor throughout it during the summer. The fudge and truffles are really outstanding and chocolate lovers, such as myself, will be in heaven. It’s a great place to purchase nuts and sweets in an old fashioned candy store setting, while at the same time supporting a locally owned business.
