Now This Is A Sweet Time… Illinois Chocolate Fest This Weekend
This Illinois Festival proves that everything tastes better dipped in chocolate.
Who Doesn't Love Chocolate?
This is probably the only time in my life that I'll compare myself to Superman. Chocolate is my Kryptonite. I have such a huge weakness for the delicious candy. It tastes so good when it hits your lips. I haven't met too many people who don't like chocolate. Can you trust someone who doesn't?
Chocolate Fest Makes Its Triumphant Return This Weekend
The legendary Chocolate Fest makes its triumphant return to historic Long Grove, Illinois this weekend after a three-year hiatus because of the pandemic.
Above anything else, Chocolate Fest is known for its amazing array of chocolate – i.e., foods and drinks everyone loves made with or dipped in chocolate.
Chocolate Row on Robert Parker Coffin Road (closed to traffic) is where vendors from far and near will be dishing out delectable treats like chocolate donuts, chocolate-covered strawberries, chocolate cupcakes, cake pops, cocoa bombs, chocolate truffles, chocolate croissants, chocolate eclairs, chocolate macarons, hand-dipped fine chocolates, chocolate covered funnel cakes, chocolate popcorn, chocolate cotton candy, frozen hot chocolate, and much more.
