Widman's Candy Shop

4325 13 Ave. SW, Fargo, ND - (701) 281-8664
Widman’s is a candy store especially well-known for its unusual chocolate-covered savories that represent some of North Dakota’s crops: wheat nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds, and – best of all – potato chips. The chocolate-covered chips are called chippers, and they are an amazing harmony of sweet and salt, melting chocolate and crunchy fried potato. Chippers are available enrobed in milk chocolate or semi-sweet dark chocolate..

We were disappointed not to find chocolate covered wheat, but the sunflower seeds were a revelation!

Regular chippers.  As good as the crispy ruffled chips are, it is the high quality of the chocolate that makes these such a special treat.

What Widman's calls hot air, Buffalo calls sponge candy.  These are smaller and triangular in shape, but tastes just as good.
