About Sweet Freaks

Welcome to Sweet Freaks, your go-to destination for all things sweet in the heart of Beverly, Chicago! Established in 2013, our family-owned candy store has been delighting the community with a delectable assortment of confections for over a decade.

At Sweet Freaks, we believe that life is simply sweeter with a little bit of sugar. Our store is a haven for candy enthusiasts of all ages, where the magic of childhood is celebrated and cherished. From nostalgic classics to contemporary treats, we offer a wide array of candies, chocolates, and sugary delights that will surely satisfy your sweet tooth.

What sets Sweet Freaks apart is not just our mouthwatering selection, but also the heart and soul behind the store. Originally founded by long-time chef and Chicago resident Patrick Murphy, who had a deep love for candy and a dream of creating a haven for sweet lovers, in March 2023 the store passed down to his equally enthusiastic daughter. With her dedication and commitment to preserving the legacy, she continues to bring the same joy and enthusiasm that her father instilled in Sweet Freaks since its inception.

When you step into our candy wonderland, you'll be greeted by an inviting and whimsical atmosphere that is reminiscent of a dreamy sugary escape. Our shelves are adorned with colorful displays of candies from around the world, offering a mix of traditional favorites and unique treasures waiting to be discovered.

Whether you're searching for a nostalgic treat from your childhood, looking to surprise a loved one with a sweet gift, or simply in need of a sugar fix to brighten your day, Sweet Freaks has you covered. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always ready to assist you in finding the perfect candy to satisfy your cravings or help you explore new flavors.

As a family-owned business deeply rooted in the Beverly community, we take pride in supporting local suppliers and artisans. We believe in fostering connections and creating memories, one sweet indulgence at a time.
