It is a great treat to drop in Vletas and browse through all of the delicious candies. My favorites are the white chocolate covered grapes when they have them and also the chocolate covered strawberries. My son always has to have an assortment of truffles. So good.

All of the candies are made by hand and are fresh and delicious! They have a very large variety for any taste. The Pecan Pralines are the best I've ever tasted.

Very cute store that smells heavenly. Any way you like your chocolate, they have it. They gave us a sample of chocolate with pecan. We bought caramel corn with white chocolate for a friend (she said delicious), taffy which I LOVE, chocolate with almonds and chocolate toffee. All were excellent. Great place for valentine gifts and gifts for the hard... More

What an indulgence we are blessed with in Abilene Texas! Yes, it's far too expensive, but the candies offered here are absolutely mouthwatering and give you just a little bit of magic while visiting the old converted depot! Love this joint!

It's hard to decide what to pick. Everything is delicious. We chose several different packages of chocolate covered nuts. All were great! Service was friendly!! We stop in every time we travel to Abilene.

What a wonderfully diverse selection of chocolates! Great service, and tasty treats make this stop a chocolate lover's paradise. And if you like coffee, be sure to try the Abilene Gold. It's flavor and aroma are unique and fabulous.

Best chocolate in Abilene period. Order early at Christmas and Valentines Day. Good news is they do have sugar free and they will ship for you.

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...
