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

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
