Amazing Chocolate!

Happened to pass this tiny shop in rural Illinois and had to go in. The chocolates are incredible in both look and in taste. If you are near here, you have to go in. Bon Appetite!

Having just got off the Interstate and entering the park, the first thing on our minds was a bathroom and walk the dogs. We came to this wonderful place on the right called the Chocolate Factory. We pulled in but as soon as we did the local police noticed us and pulled in behind us to see what we were... More

Great little chocolate store with yummy ice cream as well. They had some really unique chocolates. Could have a little more variety in the gourmet chocolate section but what they have is very good. A little pricey but worth a trip.

I live in the local area and have gone past without stopping for years and years! Yesterday I needed a last minute Valentine gift for my wife and so I stopped. Amazing! Chocolate and more chocolate! And ice cream too! Fantastic! I have to take my wife there as she loves ice cream....

This is a nice little store. They have all kinds of chocolate candies and fudge. You can definitely take care of your sweet tooth. They currently have the theme of Valentines Day. Bouquets of chocolate roses. It does not get better than this. They also have ice cream. :)

Ice cream! Fudge! Chocolate! Friendly staff! This place has it all if you're looking for a sweet treat! My daughter and I each got an ice cream cone (delicious!), and then made our way around the store as we enjoyed it. There are a ton of truffle flavors, chocolate creations, and sweet treats. If you are looking for a unique... More

This little factory & store is a very relaxed treat all around. The ice cream is really delicious! There are all kinds of chocolate treats to buy! What I enjoyed browsing most is the whimsical selection of gift chocolates. There are chocolate guitars, chocolate makeup, chocolate roses, etc. The next time I need a gift, this will be one of...

This is a nice little shop that sells candy & ice cream. The employee that served us was friendly. We had ice cream & it was good. The shop is closed on Sundays though.

We were on the way to Shawnee Forest, when we saw the sign for the Chocolate Factory. We stopped and were very impressed with the quality of the chocolates available and the selection. Prices were very reasonable considering the high quality. We usually only eat European made chocolate, but Chocolate Factory's chocolate is as good. Great place to stop to... More
