I was in the mood for some chocolate and stopped in here, the candy i was looking at was Asher's Chocolates from Pennsylvania which was honestly overpriced in this shop. I sampled three types of fudge and decided on the Rocky Road. It was good...More

I'm not sure where you were but this review has nothing to do with our shop. We only sell our own chocolates. Do not sell Asher's. And we don't sell fudge.

Feeling down, losing your hair, pimple on your nose? Take one bite of this chocolate deliciousness and all will be well. Extraordinary hand dipped chocolates with unique and standard flavors. Conveniently located in downtown Portland.

The quality of the chocolate is very good and the flavors are committed. Sometimes you get a batch that is so sweet your teeth hurt. Let those flavors shine, Dean, a little less sugar!

Great to find a no nut bakery. Having a tree nut allergy can be a problem in places like this. Nice to be able to choose any chocolate without worry. We tried several truffles & the bacon toffee. The truffles were not as flavorful or...More

Dean's features an awesome selection of nut-and-preservative-free truffles, chocolate covered fruits, and other delectable chocolatey treats that are mouthwateringly delicious. On the flavor front, I'd say Deans has two things going for them over other chocolate places: first, really well proportioned flavors. They always seem...More

This place is completely nut and preservative free, which is a huge plus. Their chocolates are delicious, as well as their chocolate covered fruits like maraschino cherries! They have a great blend of conventional and original flavors like lemon apricot chèvre. There's no real place...More
