We have been buying DeBrand chocolates since Cathy started the company back in the late 80's. Their attention to every detail is evident in the candy making process, to the packaging designs and colors. The whole chocolate experience is very special when the DeBrand name is on it. We give DeBrand chocolates to family members for special occasions. If we... More

We stopped in here the other day and it's quite a lovely place. As we were driving up to the building it seemed a bit extravagant for a chocolate shop. Once inside, I felt unworthy to stay for too long. As far as selection goes, it's the same as other DeBrand locations around town. They display many chocolate treat variations,... More

Hi KaylaAnn, thanks for your feedback. We try to do everything possible to the highest level of excellence for the benefit of our customers and their gift recipients. I was sure we had the prices clearly marked on all the chocolates so I went immediately to the shop to check; while most things were clearly marked, I saw that the... More

Those who know me, know I love chocolate! There's chocolate and then, there's CHOCOLATE! I will eat it all, but my favorite are turtles. Consider taking delicious chocolate adding creamy, soft caramel and full halves of pecans, then shaping it all like a turtle. The results are phenomenal, especially when created by DeBrand's. Equally good are when that combination is... More

We took this tour on a whim for something to do. What a great decision! It was on a Saturday afternoon, so there was no production in the factory, but that was quite alright! The tour was fun and full of information.......and quite a few chocolate tastes. The DeBrand chocolates are some of the best I have had. I made... More

This is a great place for dessert, but also to pick up a box of wonderful chocolates. Their truffles are as beautiful as they are delicious!

After a dinner this is a great place to stop in for an ice cream sundae or other dessert. The sundae is the best in town. LOVE the dark chocolate dish with a scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with raspberry and caramel sauce. Great gift ideas as well.

Now, I may be bias because this is my hometown chocolatier, and I grew up eating DeBrands every Christmas, but I honestly have not tasted better chocolates than here. I've gone to college in the SF Bay Area, and then moved out to NYC, and I've not had any caramels that compare. They're wonderfully buttery and the perfect amount of... More

You have to pay for the tour but then you get a coupon for so much off of the chocolates that you buy at the end of your tour. It was a really nice tour and you get to taste some of their products. The tour guide was very knowledgeable as she had worked in many of the departments.
