About $22 for 9 tiny pieces of just average (at best) chocolate. I am very disappointed. We have had chocolate from specialty stores (The Chocolate Fetish in Asheville is phenomenal!!!) and this could not even come close. We will not return.More

Stop by The Secret Chocolatier for a nibble, a gift, or a full dessert. Lots of fun variations on the chocolate standard. All made at the shop, so it's of the highest quality. Worth the trip!
