I feel like Asheville must love chocolate more than the average city cause they have chocolate places all over the downtown area. The Chocolate Fetish was one, just from the name, I had high hopes for something different. Sadly, it's just different chocolate snacks, not even hot chocolate drinks like some other shops. Yes, it's all made in store which... More

We especially enjoy the "Dragon's Sigh" (wasabi filling) Always a special treat following a meal at one of Asheville's delightful restaurants ... :)

If you love chocolate, this place is for you! I'm partial to dark chocolate so I got the Dark Chocolate Covered Marshmallow, and the Dark Chocolate Kahlua Truffle. YUM! I did try the peanut truffle, which is milk chocolate, and I loved it as well. The boyfriend got a white chocolate dinosaur - in the shape of a T-Rex. How... More

You could spend all day wading through all the options but we went for the exotic named truffles and we got exotic flavors. They are expensive but if you give yourself a limit, you'll be forced to make some hard decisions. Splurge....

Trekked thru town to find this #1 spot and we weren't disappointed. From walking in, making our choices, to walking out - quite an experience. Every sense is used, smell first, sounds as the bells at the door continue to ring when customers enter, sights to behold, feeling and taste ... last. A real treat!

Of course we had to stop here after reading all the amazing reviews. We went here on out first night and right when you walk in you are just overtaken by the smell of chocolate. We had the below items the first time we came here and the truffles were ok but my wife and I preferred the turtles with... More

After doing some searching for a place to visit after dinner, I knew I had to stop here. You walk in and right away the sweet and incredible scent of chocolate hits you. The place has a feel of an old time chocolate shop but there creations are anything but old. Not only do they have truffles and other small... More

The chocolates are simply fabulous, I recommend the truffles. Tell the staff what you like and they will steer you in the right direction. There is quite a bit of variety. I recommend stopping at the Chocolate Fetish for dessert, you really shouldn't miss this if you are in the area.

When you walk in the door, the smell will take over your rationale to "just look". That's what my intention was but I found myself buying more than I wanted. The employees were so nice and patient. I enjoyed the dark chocolate dipped Oreos. I felt good that I bought the dark chocolate. Still in reality, I was eating the... More
