We stopped by Monica's expecting to see a basically Chocolate Shop, however soon after we entered we became well aware that there was a variety of not only high priced chocolates but clothing , jewelry, books, tee shirts and other forms of high end tourist gadgetry. The volume and variety was great however for us...frankly it removed itself from being... More

Being a chocolate lover I had to be sure we stopped here. We were greeted at the door by a lovely young lady who asked if we had been here before. Since this was our first time she took us aside and offered us a chocolate sampling and explained about how their candy is made. Very informative. We then did... More

Absolutely to die for. Whether it's bonbons for you or chocolates in the shape of moose, lobsters, and bears for those back home, this chocolate is amazing. Try the blueberry clusters- you won't regret it!

This chocolatier is one of the best! I am not a world traveler by any means, but there has to be some technique that this lady learned from her Peruvian roots. The bon bons, which are my favorite (pictured), are so very delicious, so eloquent to the palate...very rich in taste. Not only are these chocolates delicious, but they are... More

The candy is made on the premises and you may take a tour if you like. The Neehams are a Maine specialty and a must to try. There is also, inexpensive but nice jewelry. A room devoted to import items from Peru, which are of high quality. It is worth a visit. Trust me!

I gave it 5 stats however, this business could be improved by cutting back on the pressure sales. It doesn't take rocket science to know that a customer who comes here is likely going to buy. There was a nice young lady who was helping us but at points she got to be downright pushy - almost as if she... More

The caliber of the chocolates, all made on the premises, is incredible! You're offered samples upon arrival and can try different possibilities. Especially if you're unsure of something. Monica is a delight as are any of her staff you come upon. I was buying some gifts when I last visited and was able to get sugar free chocolate without nuts.... More
