Forget the candy and cupcakes! Chicago offers some uncommon options that trump chocolate-covered cherries.
OK, so this actually is candy, but none like you’ve ever tasted. Or maybe none like you’ve ever wanted to taste. This pack comes with 20 flavors, some weird (more like disgusting) and others yummy. Which will you get: stinky socks or tutti frutti? Canned dog food or chocolate pudding? Moldy cheese or caramel popcorn? You’ve never seen kids so engrossed (pun intended). Available at candyality stores.
Many Chicago-area play rooms offer passes and gift cards for sale. Favorites include Pump It Up, Explore and Much More, Little Beans and Kookaburra Play Cafe.
