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.

I went to Widmans for some chocolate for my wife a few days before Christmas. I asked for a two pound box of assorted chocolate. They said they don't have any. I asked for a one pound box of assorted chocolate. They said they didn't have any. I pointed at the wall where they have the boxes and prices. I... More

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!

On the way out of town we stopped by to try the chippers. Get 2 of each of the 5 varieties, they are good! Cost you about $5.00 and will make a good road snack! They have a lot of neat gift items as well if we lived anywhere near here. Located in the back side of a big shopping... More

I don't mean chocolate in the shape of an olive. I mean chocolate covered olives. And pickles. And jalapenos. I tried them all! The Chippers (chocolate covered potato chips were good, but I think the chocolate to potato chip ratio is too high. Needs a little less choc and a little more chip). But you gotta go here just to...
