The aroma hits you when you walk inside this old building and your mouth starts watering almost instantly. It's pricey - but fabulous! They have a terrific selection of sugar-free candies, and other items that can be a little difficult to find: chocolate-covered peanuts, almonds, pretzels, etc. Give yourself a treat and pick up a couple of things you can't...

This small chocolate shop makes their own candies right on the premesis. They have a very good selection and offer sugar free varieties that are excellent. My grandchildren love to come in for the chocolate covered oreos. Quite a treat for them. Recently they offered white chocolate dipped fresh cranberries for the holiday season. These are absolutely to die for,... More

Oh my goodness....where to start! At the front door, of course! The moment you step into this candy store, the wonderful candy smells assaults your senses and your knees go weak. Okay, now I must go there again!!

This wonderful chocolate shop is located in the old train depot downtown. They offer a huge selection of chocolates and other goodies. The pralines were exceptionally good, and my boys enjoyed the chocolate covered oreos. Well worth the money for a sweet treat!

We really enjoyed the chocolate-covered strawberries here! We had two families and the whole group loved the big juicy treats. The individual truffles are heavenly and were made very nicely with a double chocolate layer. The little bags of treats were good too - we bought many flavors. I especially loved the dark chocolate sea salted caramel. yum! The tiramisu... More

My family has been shopping at Vleta's for decades. The chocolate has always been amazing and the selection of goodies more than one could even imagine. I love to give Vleta's for teacher gifts and as thank you's. It's always a big hit.

Got some as 'thank you' gifts to give to the staff at the Residence Inn Marriott where I stayed. A little pricey but on the same quality level as See's, so, you get what you pay for and apparently the consensus around town is that these candies & chocolate are 'the bomb'!
