This is my go-to place when I'm looking for a special treat for a friend's birthday or as a pick-me-up. You can't beat their chocolate covered strawberries on Valentine's Day or their peanut brittle.

Vletas has a huge assortment of wonderful chocolate and brittle, but my absolute favorite are their chocolate covered Strawberrys and chocolate covered grapes. They will not disappoint! Delicious! You men out there can't go wrong with a gift from here. They do a fabulous job with gift wrapping too!

Best candies in Abilene!! Friendly service. Handmade there in store! A big selection of all your favorite candies. In a delightful old restored building by the T&P Railroad. Worth the money and the trip!!

Every hand-made bite is to die for--especially the truffles! It is located in a former Santa Fe railroad building, and the employees are very friendly.

Priced at the top with the best of chocolates, but the taste and quality beats them all. The old REA Express station just adds to the charm;

They have the best candies in Abilene. The chocolate pecans, cashews and peanuts are the best. When you can get the chocolate covered strawberries they are the best. You will not be disappointed.
