The chocolate was fantastic! My kids ate 1/2 lb in 10 minutes then wanted to go back! The guys behind the counter were super friendly. Will definitely order a few boxes as gifts for my college kids!

I stopped by for a little treat today and was delighted to stop in this shop,. The two people behind the counter were very friendly. The chocolates were very good, especially the salted caramels. A good find

When it comes to chocolate I am a Choc-o-holic. Don't get me wrong I love chocolate but only good chocolate like Godiva, Cadbury, Hersey's to name a few. I thought some chocolate would get the cruddy taste from the poor meal my wife and I had at the pub and brewery in Lake Placid moments earlier so we stopped into... More

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
