Widman's Candy Shop was a must do while in Fargo. We were not disappointed! The young lady behind the counter was just as delightful as the candy in the cases! She was friendly, attentive and eager to help. We sampled several selections (the dill pickle was my least favorite) and left with several packages of the variety of chippers. They... More

Stop and get the chippers. Dark chocolate ones are the best. There caramels are also great. Its a little spendy but it is a specialty chocolate shop and well worth splurging on.

We went to Carol Widman's for a treat for my boys and birthday treats for a family members birthday at exactly 1855 and the open sign was on. I got to the door after shuffling my nine month old daughter and two young boys out of the car and they shut the light off. The door was open so we... More

You must try the chocolate covered potato chips - may sound weird but they are fabulous. All of their treats are wonderful.

Everything in this store is amazing. The Chippers are what are particularly wonderful, and they are what made the store famous. Chippers are chocolate covered rippled potato chips and they are worth a trip to the store.

After reading all the comments about Widman's famous Chippers, I made a beeline for the unassuming little candy shop when I arrived in Fargo. While the reception was very friendly and the chocolate delicious, Chippers just don't live up to the hype. The reason? Too much chocolate, too little potato chip. While there is the faint sense of the chips'... More

I just so happen to run into this place while stuck in Fargo coming home from a business trip. I was pleasantly surprised!
