Huge truffles, haystacks, frogs, ... Need I say more. We stopped by a couple minutes before closing. The staff were very friendly, courteous, weren't rushing anyone. The chocolate is all local, but not made on site. Shared a dark chocolate haystack with my husband -...More

We were so interested in browsing and getting a treat. We certainly waited long enough for it to open on a Saturday (opens at 12 noon). When we got there at about 3:30, the place was jammed... so we browsed and salivated and picked out...More

My daughter and I are chocoholics, so it's amazing we got out of this store with only three pieces each. Probably because of the cost, but you can't go wrong with handmade candy. Waynesville is such a quaint, enjoyable town.....we moseyed up and down Main...More

Stopped in with the family on July 4th. Picked out a few chocolate candies for the seven year old. Everyone was friendly and we all enjoyed the chocolates.

They have a variety of chocolates and everything I bought was excellent. The Baileys, Kahlua, and Fire Jack shooters are the best and the truffles are great. If you are in downtown Waynesville stop by and have a sweet treat.

We wandered in and were completely charmed by the presentation. The truffles are absolutely beautiful. This review is only concerning the truffles we had, not the rest of the lesser confections. We chose the Bacon, a dark shell with milk ganache and, supposedly, bacon. It...More

This is a small shop on the more eastern end of Main Street in downtown Waynesville. They offer a wide selection of in-house made, mostly chocolate based candies with a wide variety of fruit and nut flavors. Even have some low or non-sugar choices. You...More
