Amazing Chocolates

The chocolates are amazing some of the best I have had. Various types and flavored and many you would not see in most stores. It has to be a stop on your visit to Asheville.

I thought The Chocolate Fetish catered to people that already have a fetish for chocolate. That's how they attracted us. Once there, it was near-impossible to decide what to order. The dark- and light-chocolate peanut butter cups and the pistachio frog (like a turtle?) were the winners. The texture and taste of their chocolates are so good that it made... More

The best chocolate I have ever had and I have had a lot of chocolate. You an not buy this quality of chocolate off the shelf at a store. They have shops like this in Europe but first time I have seen this quality in the USA.

I love the chocolates from this store, but on Tuesday morning the word disorganized and clueless is all I can say. I walked in shortly after they opened. They had 2 people working behind the counter, and about 25 people in the store, 3 groups of large family parties who as you can imagine were indecisive....think willy wonka thru a... More

Upon arrival the aroma of sweets is intoxicating! The selections are too numerous to choose from. My favorites are milk chocolate with sea salt and dark chocolate with marshmallow. No matter your taste, there is a selection for you.

Love chocolate and tried all the places in Asheville. Although one place had long lines, our vote for the best chocolate (in taste and variety) is this one.

These people know their chocolate! The level of sophistication and expertise shows in their products. Friendly and helpful staff help you put together a great gift for chocolate lovers or just an afternoon snack while downtown. The chocolate shoes are a wonder to see.

We saw this place on Trip Advisor and really wanted to try it. I'm so glad that we did! It is a very cute shop with Lots of choices. My two boys got two pieces each and they loved it. Picking what to try is the hardest part of the visit!
