We loved our tour! Randy did awesome and we loved all of the free samples we got. I wanted to try the chocolate covered blueberries but I felt like they were a little pricey. They have great customer service and randy was super knowledgable about all things chocolate and very very nice! Would def recommend to others!

Visited the Factory as part of our itinerary during a recent 2 day trip that was sponsored by ViaAir and our local radio station. WTNJ 105.9. Would definitely visit again

Randy did a great job as our tour guide. There is a small cost to tour, but part of it is couponed back when you make a purchase. It is not a big place, but the tour lasted about an hour and Randy was great at answering our questions regarding processes and artisan chocolate. Be aware that this is a... More

This past Valentine's weekend was such a great time in St. Augustine, with many stops and sites visited......including the stop here. We arrived by trolley, several minutes before our tour was to begin so we ordered a hot chocolate with a shot of espresso. WOW......what a treat! The day was a bit cold, but we enjoyed our hot chocolate outside.... More

Cheryl was our tour guide and she made the tour 'sweet' and interesting. Obviously Cheryl loved her job! The tour gave an interesting history of chocolate and the Whetstone family and their business. The chocolate is delicious. I am not a dark chocolate lover but it was delicious. The white chocolate and milk chocolate were fantastic.

Our guide, Cheryl, was wonderful and paid special attention to them, giving them extra samples and asking them to be... More
