Chocoholic's downfall

Oh MY. Taste their recommended favorite. Our second trip to The Fetish and my favorite chocolate place in Asheville. Pricey, so be selective. Great for special gifts for those who you want to remember.

Came in here one Sunday afternoon. Everything looks good, but a little expensive for may taste. We ended up getting some chocolate covered pretzels that were good. When looking around none of the employees ever acknowledged us. I wasn't too impressed.

The array of choices here is delightful. There are seashells in chocolate, shoes and other shapes to entertain kids while you are picking more exotic fare, and everything I've had tastes good! My son loves the large flat disks, while I tend toward the more traditional, but I have great success with the boxed gift sets when I need a... More

First, we hit The Chocolate Fetish, then we waited in a very long line at a competitor around the corner... Skip the line! This place is amazing!!! Best truffles I've had in a long time!

The Chai Moon, Midsummer's Dream and African Queen were all phenomenal. Save your dessert calories for this place. If you stay at the Haywood Park next door, you get Chocolate Fetish for turndown service.

Good choice of chocolates and very innovative designs. Very busy but not too long a wait. The chocolates were very good, if a little rich and expensive for what you actually get.

You will love the chocolate truffles because there are so many flavors. Traditional flavors like chocolate, mint, hazelnut, etc but the special ones with cayenne pepper or wasabi are so unique. Prices are $2 - $2.50 a truffle which is in line if not less than upscale chocolate shops Also I loved the high heel chocolate shoe. These are so... More

Truffles are truly amazing! The store has so many chocolates to chose from . The salted habanero caramel is one of my favorites. A little heat, but it does not over power the chocolate and caramel. Haven't been disappointed with any chocolates purchased. If you're visiting downtown Asheville and enjoy fine chocolates, a visit here is a must!

If you want to surprise someone with a wonderful gift, look no farther than this chocolatier. Their hand made truffles are wonderful -- reminds me of the best European chocolate, but, truthfully, I think much better. It is almost a sin to bite into one of those beautiful chocolates, but you can't resist.
