Lake County Sweets and Treats

Local sweets and treats await for you to indulge in...

If it only takes a spoon full of sugar to help the medicine go down, I think we’ve overdone it. Sweeten your weekend in Lake County and let your sweet tooth run free with plenty of unique treats!

The Long Grove Confectionery Company is one of the sweethearts of the Chicagoland area, so let’s start there. It’s no wonder they’re known around the world for their gourmet dark chocolate, milk chocolate, barks, turtles and more…oh my. Reserve your spot for a group tour so you can see how all the magical goodness happens!

Popcorn Factory Outlet in Lake Forest will make you see popcorn in a whole new way. They take popcorn to the extreme by turning this snack into a decadent treat with their S’mores popcorn that you won’t soon forget. Trust me. And if you can’t decide, just ask for a sample or the favorite on their list.

Uniquely Sweet prepares some of the finest decadent pleasures you could ever indulnge in. On select days, you can even make the candy yourself! Plan a visit to their "sister" stores (2 locations), Somethings Brewing. Local roasted gourmet coffee beans, homemade soup, sandwiches, and salads, topped off with a scratch bakery and assortment of homemade candies that will have your jaw drop in wonder. All these have-to-visit locations are conveniently located in Grayslake.
