Fruit-shaped Marzipan candy

Years ago, when I was but a lad, one of the highlights of my Christmas season was going to the State Street Fields to buy presents for my family. Back then (late 70's, early 80's), Fields had a wonderful candy department on the first floor, and sold Marzipan candy colored and shaped like fruit. I don't like Marzipan, but my mom loves it, and I always bought some for her. I'd like to buy some this year, but Fields no longer sells it (don't get me started on how the purchase of Field's by Target/Dayton-Hudson destroyed the character and charm of the store.)

I know that Lutz Bakery on Montrose sells these candies, but I'm hoping to find somewhere downtown or near north so I can go on my lunch hour. Any ideas?
