Overview

We are proud to offer fresh-crafted, locally-made, gourmet chocolate. Our preservative-free treats have been made fresh in Henderson, Nevada since 1981, and most of our ingredients are made on site. We also offer one of the world's largest cactus gardens, which we decorate annually for the holidays and Valentine's Day with hundreds of thousands of lights and festive designs. Ethel M Chocolates is a Mars, Inc. company. You may be familiar with other Mars products, like M&Ms, Snickers, Twix, Milky Way, and Dove, among others. But Ethel M Chocolates is the only gourmet, premium chocolate brand in the Mars portfolio. And it's made fresh, here in Henderson. Stop by!

Way over-priced tour. It is owned by Mars, so what is the big deal? I'd rather go the Jelly-Belly tour, or the Budweiser tour, or the Tillamook Cheese tour. All of those are free and are way more interesting.

This is a nice place to visit for any age person who enjoys chocolate. After visiting the chocolate store, there is a real nice large cactus garden to walk through.

There is a lot to like about visiting the factory and garden. First, everything is free except for what you decide to purchase at the gift store. I have never been to a chocolate factory with a cactus garden. Very interesting assortment of cactus. You...More

Definitely, if you are in the area, visit. The Cactus Garden is the highlight. It is filled with cacti from around the hemisphere...really cool. The chocolate factory is ok. Everything looked great, but definitely a premium price.

There are several species of cactus, and other plants. It is a nice walk through when the weather is nice. The candy shop is quite large and they had free samples. You can see them making the candy right on the premises. A good way...More

They’ve updated since my last visit 5 years ago. You can view the actual factory from the gift shop. They sell prepackaged chocolates, and you can also create your own box of handpicked goodies. The place is spotless. Take the time to visit their beautiful...More

Ethel M's chocolates has variety of chocolates and other chocolate related merchandise. Chocolates are bit expensive but it is expected. I particularly liked their bundled bars deal. The self guided tour is a quick walk and there was no one to explain the process, so...More
