It smells so good when you walk in here. Old fashioned candy store with a huge selection of candy. I would say, however, that we bought 1/4 pound of their almond butter crunch from the display case and and an additional 1/2 pound box.

We stop here every time we're near Wilmington. They are always stocked with delicious chocolates. They also have a large selection of sugar free chocolate.

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!

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.
