My son and I stopped in the candy shop after a bitter cold day of snowboarding. The staff wasn't very friendly but we enjoyed our treats. The assorted box was the best value and required less contact with the staff.

This place has a wide selection of goodies. The fudge is what I call "Beach fudge", that is thick, soft and tasty. You cannot go wrong stopping in here and indulging.

My son and I were hungry and wanted a morning snack. Chocolate isn't that healthy, I know, but that is what we chose. We each got a peanut butter cup. How disappointing! The peanut butter was disgusting - separated and had NO flavor! There was too much chocolate to even get a hint of the taste of peanut butter. We... More

If you love chocolate, you must visit this place. It smells wonderful when you walk in. There are traditional gift shop items. The chocolate candy options are immense and priced well enough. We will return!

Chocolate covered peeps were absolutely amazing. Wish they would go the extra step and avoid cross contaminating for Gluten Free shoppers!

Their chocolates are absolutely wonderful, if they were cheaper they'd be getting the full 5 stars. (I know their prices reflect the fact that they're homemade, but I just would have been able to buy more if it were cheaper.)

Opening the door to this shop is like stepping into a little corner of heaven. Great chocolate and wonderful atmosphere. I would recommend going to the shop in Wilmington instead of Lake Placid if the option is available to you.
