Veruca began as a wholesale business and today anyone can sample the variety of handmade, artisan chocolates and caramels made for those with a discerning taste for fine chocolate and an eye for beauty. Each piece is handmade and hand decorated to entertain more than one sense. Everything is made from scratch in the Lincoln Park kitchen from year-round to seasonal products for Valentine's Day (natch), Christmas, Hanukkah and Halloween. Signature bonbons feature unique flavors inside and bright colors outside (try milk and dark chocolate with brown butter or Champagne truffles). Don't leave without sampling the signature sea salt caramel enrobed in 64% dark chocolate which was named one of 25 best chocolates in the US by Food and Wine. Add some drinking chocolate and you'll be all set for another day. Consider taking a public or private class to get your hands directly into the chocolate making process.
- Dessert: "The Chicago flight of chocolates dons designs of city landmarks. The Bean design is coffee flavored inspired by Metropolis Coffee Company and the Ferris Wheel is inspired Ann Sather's iconic cinnamon buns."
- Best for Dessert Because: Veruca Chocolates, handmade and decorated in Lincoln Park, are some of the finest artisan chocolates in the city if not the country.
