About Us


John Nagel and Greg Lopus are lovers of all things sweet and nostalgic. If they can make you feel something walking into their candy stores, they’ve been successful. Together, they’ve gathered the best of the best candy creations from the past and are continuously on the search for the next big thing to make you smile.

John is our popcorn extraordinaire. He’s traveled the country, coast to coast, on the hunt for the tastiest popcorn ingredients to bring you new and delightful flavors. John also enjoys spending time in the test kitchen coming up with new recipes of his own. One of his legendary recipes has become our famous ‘Chi Town Cheddar.”

Greg is our candy connoisseur. His mission is to find the candy companies producing the hard-to-find treats of yesteryear. Greg fills our store shelves with candies that will make you remember your childhood and fulfill you sweet tooth cravings. He’ll take you on a candy-coated trip down Memory Lane. It’s not uncommon to have adults picking out more sweet treats than youngsters.

Sweet treat lovers of all ages frequent our stores because we have something for everyone. Candy and popcorn have a universal appeal and the magic ability to create time travel. At Cosmic Candy Company you will take a blast to the past as you indulge in candies you haven’t had in years.

Whether you’re looking for retro candy, mouthwatering blends of popcorn or unique gift baskets, you’ll be delighted that you have discovered that hidden gem of your sweet dreams.

‚ÄčIf you can’t smell the sweet aroma there is nothing wrong with your computer. You’ll just have to come into one of our three store locations or order your own box that can be shipped right to your door.

“For us it’s all about making people happy. We sell smiles. We sell happiness and joy. It’s not just sweets and treats, popcorn and ice cream. It’s nostalgia, memories and tradition.”
