Just moved to Beauford, went to Chocolate Tree to buy my grandchildren Easter Bunnies. In reaching for the bunny on the shelf a nearby larger bunny fell breaking a small piece off. Apparently the owner was standing right next to me and said "you broke it. You bought it. I had to buy a $15 chocolate bunny...I am still reeling... More

This jewel was pointed out to us during a van tour of Beaufort. The staff at this store did tell us that chocolates were bought there during the filming of Forrest Gump by the crew. The staff were very friendly and the chocolates delicious. Right across the street from the First African Baptist Church...another spot that was used in the... More

This place is so popular, it was hard to find a parking space with everyone coming and going! It was interesting watching a worker clean the big copper pots outside of the building. I would say this place is spotlessly clean! You could find every kind of chocolate possible here, mostly made in-house. Service was very friendly.

If you have a "sweet tooth" you must go here, The chocolates are some of the best I have ever had. My husband is diabetic, and my son gets him the sugar free peanut clusters which have absolutely NO aftertaste. I love the fruit slices which come in flavors not often found in the commercial varieties. All the candy is... More

Fabulous chocolate and candies. This is the store the "Box of Chocolates" in Forrest Gump came from. The whole store smells like Real Chocolate, not the stuff you buy in candy bars at the store.

This is a small shop which concocts all kinds of WONDERFUL chocolate candies. You can purchase one piece or have any assortment you choose shipped to yourself or your friends anywhere in the world. Be sure to stop in while in Beaufort!

We had been on a carriage tour today and of course we were told about how Tom Hanks had bought the box of chocolates for Forrest Gump here. We finished our tour and walked back and they had a variety of different kinds of candies and chocolates. We bought a few boxes to bring home. It is very delicious, but... More
