You can buy various preserves & dips which are quite delicious & many other crafts. She sells knitted goods as per her advertisement -" Our beautiful Alpaca wool sweaters... More

The best part of Monica's is Monica! Wow! She met us at the door and immediately asked us what type of chocolates we liked. She disappeared for a minute and came back with chocolates to taste. All I can say is YUM! There were six of us in all yet she nicely showed us where they were made and delighted... More

Excellent candy from local store. Great variety and prices and good location. As good as other brands made throughout the U.S.

Monica's Chocolates are the most amazing, splendid, magical chocolates I've ever eaten. Yes, they are that good! Pricey but since they are all made in house with quality ingredients and no extra chemicals or other awful things, they are worth the price. The shop is an attraction in itself with various rooms containing an array of jewelery, alpaca sweaters, purses... More

Monica's Chocolates are incredibly tasty and rich. On the pricey side, but worth the indulgence. The shop also has a very nice selection of gift items, apparently mostly from Peru (Monica's home country). Clothing, alpaca items and jewelry feature heavily. I highly recommend the salt caramel chocolates.

Monica's Chocolates.....so I thought what's the big deal? What's going to set these chocolates apart from all the others out there. Well, go there and try these chocolates and then you will realize Monica is VERY special and her chocolates are AMAZING! When we were there she was personally giving out tastings of her chocolates and letting us sample anything... More

A must see/stop/shop! Located just before downtown Lubec. The alpaca sweaters from Puru were SO perfect...nevermind the chocolate! Great little gift shop!

Yes, it's expensive, but it is worth every cent. The best caramels ever!! Wonderful little shop with so much packed in - the jewelry, jams and textiles were all great. Lovely shop and I'm so glad we stopped in, even if I walked out $75 poorer ;)

Monic's Chocolates are really quite excellent, however, after looking at what we pay per 8 once box we discovered that the true cost of her chocolates are over $24.00 a pound. As much as we like her product, we will not purchase again.
