Stopped in craving chocolate after dinner! $2-$3 for one piece of chocolate is a price that I normally wouldnt pay but I was craving it. I purchased three pieces and spent almost $10...dont get me wrong they were very good but I just dont think I would make a habit out of paying that!

Walked around, smelled the air and looked at the prices. Realized that I can't afford to buy chocolate! It is a wonderful place but you pay the price for your fetish! If you have money burning a hole in your pocket and you love chocolate like nothing else this is definitely the place for you!

What a great little spot to jump in from the cold or if you have a wait for lunch or dinner reservations. Get your dessert first!! Stop in and enjoy some hot sipping chocolate and tasty treats. There pretty much isn't anything that they can't make in chocolate and just the variety alone is worth a preview. The staff is... More

SO MANY CHOICES! We received complimentary champagne truffles in our room, but the Chocolate Fetish has long been a must-go destination for us anytime we're in Asheville.

A friend asked us to check out this chocolate shop because they have "the best truffles." When we walked in, we were greeted by cases full of chocolate and the best chocolate smell ever! I loved the chocolate high heels and other molded chocolates on the shelves! It was a little difficult to see into the cases because of the... More

Great selection of good chocolates, very pricey! However, this is a nice place for a very special treat in the center of Asheville. Beautiful displays in a lovely appointed locally made chocolate store. For my tastes their chocolates were overly buttery and somewhat skimpy on flavor and tastes. I tried about 10 different chocolates, and I am biased because I... More

I haven't tried much since I am not a huge sweet eater but the sipping chocolate could possibly convert me. It is amazing! The staff/service is great. The prices are a little steep but it is a chocolate novelty store so to be expected. They have a huge selection, tons of variety and some great gift items.

The Chocolate Fetish "factory" can be found inside the Haywood Hotel -- on the way to the breakfast bistro and Bier Garden. Big window where you can watch the chocolate workers do their stuff. I bought a huge dark chocolate disc and a sleeve of pretzels dipped in dark chocolate. The place to go if you LOVE anything chocolate.
