This is one store that as soon as you open the door, your mouth begins to water. The smells are fantastic.

This landmark invented the potato and chocolate combo CHIPPER! Definitely a half pound box must have for yourself and another to take home! A very quaint and old time shop with wonderful employees! Don't forget your sample treat if you buy!

My son who attended the University of Minnesota Crookston kept talking about how good the candy at Widmans was and wanted to go back one last time. The store has been around since 1911 and in the same location since 1919! That alone is amazing....More

The chippers are my favorite. Nice nichey little spot. The chocolate is amazing. They offer free samples - so stop in and try some.
