I am probably going to regret this post but... I mentioned Fishers Nuts in past posts where I get most of my nuts for baking, and in interesting flavors. They are going to have a warehouse sale Feb 1

Thank you so much for the information Nikki, you're a doll!  I've put the dates on my calendar so I won't forget to go there!  Looking forward to seeing, and of course buying, all the goodies that they have there.

OK, now don't tell anyone else.  I don't want a "mob scene" when I go shopping.

Gee --- thanks a lot, Nikki.  Think of me when you're buying sale nuts.

Here's hoping you have a great time and get lots of bargains.

Thanks for the info Nikki.  I think I'll have to pass on that.  New Jersey is  a little far to go there.  Would have been nice though.  Hope you get some real good bargains!

If we lived near that my husband would be wanting more peanut brittle made for him.

We have a candy warehouse here that is murder on the waistline but, great on the pocket book. We get fantastic deals on Christmas candy right now and they also have 2nds, damaged boxed items and of course regular stuff.

We have this: http://www.russellstover.com/storelocator/storelocatormain.jsp?&city=176

Wa-Ha, First let me ask how are you doing?  You had a doctors appointment on the 5th I think, hope everything is well.
I Love the Russell Stover Outlets we stop at one in Florida and there is one in southern Illinois that we have stopped at.  Great bargains. I am glad I don't live closer!! 
There is a candy outlet pretty near me, Long Grove Confectionary.  Very dangerous place to go!  I put together some great gift baskets for the holidays from items I get in bulk and seconds.

I will report back!.  I did splurge last time I was there, I got some toffee flavored Macadamia nuts.  1 pound bag for $4.00. More for nibbling than baking but I bet they would taste great in the White Island Cookie.

THANK YOU NIKKI!  I live in Chicago Heights just a coup miles from the Indiana Border but, I still have to do loads of traveling as my kids live in Aurora.  I just sail on down those TOLL WAYS that were suppose to be free how many years ago?  I have always wanted to go to Long Grove as I have watched it several times on Chicago Travel Stops.

Wow...if we still lived in Mount Prospect rather than Oshkosh, I'd for sure be there!

grrrrrrrrr I wish this thread would be closed.  Talking about good, low-prices candy I can't have is just not fair!    Wink
