Amazing variety of flavor profiles makes these chocolates truly memorable

We stopped in for a short visit and picked up three chocolate truffles with the most unusual names. The associate behind the counter was very helpful and we were more than pleased with the results. Each one a delight. The one with the purple flower pedal is our favorite.

Try the sinful liquid truffle Old location was always slow and packed with tourists They move the line much faster in new location so they are back on the list of places to go for locals

Having lived in Asheville for several years, we have tried all of the chocolate shops at some point. The selection and variety of the chocolate fetish cannot be beat. We also feel the quality is the best. The chocolate products are beautifully displayed and the staff is very friendly.

Every time I take my wife to dinner downtown the evening isn't complete until we swing by the Chocolate Fetish. Everything they make is great but the Truffles are what makes this place famous with the locals. Oh, and that heavenly smell... True story: when I was planning to move to Asheville about 10 years ago, my wife wasn't that... More

You know that expression "you get what you pay for"? Yeah, you do. This was the second most expensive chocolate I've had, and perhaps the best sea salt chocolate truffle ever.

We were referred to this place by some friends for some different chocolate offerings. They had a great selection of chocolates and we took advantage of it! It is located conveniently downtown and you can walk off what you eat! The shoes made of chocolate was definitely the most interesting item. Be prepared to spend quite a bit of money... More
