You can buy chocolate candies by the piece ... and there is enough variety to satisfy any palate. Upscale is the best descriptor. And on a chilly day, don't pass up the hot chocolate.

Thank you for taking a moment and letting us know how much you enjoyed our chocolates. 43 years of great candy making and very proud of our staff. Come back soon or we can ship. Happy New Year.

Pretty nice little place on the square. Train track overhead and plenty of selection and everything we tried was good. Be prepared on price as just a few pieces of chocolate and a small chunk of fudge cost more than a good steak dinner!

Thank you for your review. 43 years of candy making and the use of quality ingredients lend to great chocolates. Give our delicious Truffles a try next time. Heavy sweet whipping cream and chocolate create the most amazing experience and only around $1.25 each.
