Ethereal confections

140 Cass Street, Woodstock, IL 60098


Taking food (and chocolate) forward. Bean to bar chocolatier,

The company, co-founded by owners Sara Miller and brother and sister duo Michael and Mary Ervin, make bean-to-bar chocolate and confections from scratch ingredients which are dairy, gluten, and soy-free. Yum! The Woodstock-based Ethereal Confections has a food-forward cafe, as well as a speakeasy and events space, where local ingredients and gluten, dairy, and soy-free items are the focus. because people, like great eats, aren't a one-size-fits-all deal. 

The local company which has been profiled by Martha Stewart, Men's Journal, and WGN Chicago, takes an equally scrupulous approach when it comes to sourcing. Ethereal's owners have visited and met with the chocolate farmers with whom they work and prioritize fair conditions and organic ingredients.
