Terry’s Toffee and Wackerpop

I visited the Andersonville Farmer’s Market this week on a dog walk and ran across the Terry’s Toffee booth with owners Terry and his partner Michael in attendance. They gave me a sample of their insanely good toffee and chocolate-covered popcorn, Wackerpop. I reached into my purse to find only change and nary a credit card. With regret, I looked at the various varieties of toffee, McCall’s Dark (the toffee recipe is from Terry’s grandmother McCall), Lemon Paradise, Hazelicious, Koffee Toffee, Chai-cago Spice among others and that addictive Wackerpop.

I dejectedly went home empty-handed.

To my astonishment, a bag of Cran-Orange Terry’s Toffee was hanging on my door knob when I got home, a gift from a neighbor whose mail I had retrieved. Sometimes the universe IS listening.

You can buy Terry’s Toffee at the Galleria in Andersonville or order the Wackerpop and other products online at:

The Galleria, Space #8, 5247 N. Clark St., Chicago, IL 60640


  1. Love Terry’s toffee!!!! Terry and Michael are such wonderful people as well!!!

  2. I love that story! Thank you so much for sharing that Elizabeth. Terry’s Toffee was born out of the book “The Artist’s Way” author Julia Cameron. It’s all about “listening to the Universe”. My passion is connection and creativity, the toffee is the vehicle. Sweet!
