The scariest day of the year is almost upon us. No, it’s not Tax Day—it’s Halloween!

You likely have fond memories of going door to door as a youngster amassing huge piles of candy that fueled a weeks-long sugar rush, but Halloween may have lost a bit of its luster as you’ve gotten older. However, who says adults can’t still enjoy Halloween by gorging on candy?

Right near your Edgewater apartment are a number of candy shops that specialize in high-quality, handmade sweets. You may want to grab some for trick-or-treaters or, better yet, stock up for yourself, so you can re-create the magic of Halloween!

Here are a few of the sugary standouts:


Max Brenner: This is the king of the local chocolate world. This entire restaurant, one mile from your Edgewater apartment, is themed around chocolate. You should definitely pencil in a trip for a full multi-course meal (of course, saving room for dessert), but Max Brenner also operates an on-site candy shop, with lots of goodies to go.


Nutty World: If you get the urge to satisfy your sweet tooth while you’re on the go, swing by Nutty World, six blocks from your Edgewater apartment inside Suburban Station. Contrary to what its name suggests, the shop offers much more than nuts, including chocolates, hard candies and much more. You never know when the chocolate craving will hit, making the convenient location of Nutty World a welcome sight for sweets lovers.


Godiva Chocolatier: The internationally known chocolate-maker is just one mile from your Edgewater apartment. From luxury Belgian chocolates to hand-dipped cookies and fruit, Godiva will certainly hit the sweet spot. The shop also sells an array of packaged goodies, so if you’re heading to a Halloween party and want to impress the host, swing by Godiva first.
