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

We passed the Chocolate Factory on the way to the Garden of the Gods. And the whole time we were hiking, we were thinking that we have to stop by on the way back. So we did! Despite all the neat looking homemade chocolate, we decided on the ice cream. They had a pretty good selection of different ice creams,... More

The Chocolate Factory near Dixon Springs State Park in southernmost Illinois is simply irresistible. May I suggest the orange blossoms, toffee squares and my all time favorite the milk chocolate terrapins. If you are an ice cream lover, hand dipped ice cream is also available. A must stop during your next visit to southernmost Illinois.
