Chocoholic Paradise

Various chocolate bar options from exotic countries. But don't leave without sampling some truffles & bonbons. Sample some? Nah, but a whole bunch. They know how to make delectable sweets and treats. While I'm not a big fan of virgin chocolate, it's so different that it's worth a try.

Tried this place based on all the great reviews. Perhaps I went in expecting to much. The caramel was nice and creamy, the white chocolate had to much salt and the brownie was very dry. I will find another place to visit next time I am in Charlotte.

Found this place after a search here and made the short drive to check them out. I went in to this place and was greeted by a warm and friendly woman behind the counter. I looked at their assortment of truffles and went with the white chocolate, coconut and the orange. After a brief conversation with her we parted ways... More

I have visited the location in South Charlotte before not far from Ballantyne. This weekend my wife booked us in a special tasting that they do now and then where they turn loose their chef to create the most stunning flavor combinations I have ever experienced. If you can try one of their special tastings that come up a couple... More

Stop by The Secret Chocolatier for a nibble, a gift, or a full dessert. Lots of fun variations on the chocolate standard. All made at the shop, so it's of the highest quality. Worth the trip!

A very nice family owned chocolate shop. They carry many unusual and delicious chocolates from all over the world. Their handmade chocolates are delicious. I enjoy their special events too.

Amazing chocolates very fresh and hand made. Not the typical chocolate shop. The owner tell you their story and make you love the business even more! (Basil truffle is unbelievable)

This is a very small store front chocolatier! Wonderful family, exceptional and knowledgeable in their understanding, presentation and execution of their delicious chocolates, cakes, mousse, caramel and brownies from around the globe. A respectable value for their fine goods, truly bringing creative and innovative ways of different combinations of chocolates and other ingredients for us to enjoy! They primarily had... More

Hands down amazing chocolates! Fine quality made chocolate hand crafted there on location by the Ciordia-Dietz family. Walk in, grab a truffle (or a box!) and you won't be disappointed. I ordered a 7 Deadly Sins Cake there for my sister's bridal shower and there are no words... it was just the sort of thing any chocolate snob would be... More

We're always glad to send a little chocolate sin into the world and our 7 Deadly is a family favorite. While it's not a secret those who find there way to it are usually enamored with it. We are so glad that it went over well at your party and thank you for your kind words and visit. We always... More

Oh the selection of chocolate truffles. Great selection--perpermint, peanut butter, chai tea, earl gray--wonderful! Also do cakes. It is tucked away in a strip mall but well worth a stop. Enjoy!
