Such A Neat Place!!

We decided to try The Chocolate Fetish based on reviews and were not disappointed! There are so many neat and different chocolates to try. My favorite was the White Cashew Frogs! Also the staff was very helpful. Would definitely recommend.

At $32. a pound this better be good! Various pieces of chocolate made on site? Elegant . But not for everyday. Just Rare occasions. We tried 6 different candies all were delicious.

My husband and I visited here and we were very impressed with the quality of the chocolate. We purchased and assortment of 15 truffles and chocolates for just over $30. I would happily return here ever time we visit Asheville. The service was prompt and knowledgeable.

This small shop tucked into Haywood Street in downtown Asheville is a real treat. It's clean and brightly lit to show off the beautifully made and decorated chocolates. I was in before Valentine's, and there were chocolate high heeled shoes! I tried a wide selection to give a good review, lol. Truffles were amazing, especially the Key Lime. Other creations... More

Get the salted caramels...get the salted caramels....get the salted caramels. Oh wait, and the Key Lime truffles...and the...oh heck, get one of each. ALWAYS excellent friendly service. Chocolates made onsite. Easy in and out. Often overlooked by visitors but so worth a stop.

Chocolate Fetish has been in Asheville for years long before the French Broad Chocolate Lounge which seems to get a lot of attention. Both are worthy chocolate makers. The Chocolate Fetish has a wide variety of chocolate truffles and various fruits covered in milk or dark chocolate. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. If there's a line out the door... More

This is not a restaurant - they sell the very best chocolate truffles I've ever had. Somewhat expensive, but well worth the money, if you are a chocoholic, which I am. Whenever I receive some as a gift, I do not share them - they are that good!

Simply put, the Chocolate Fetish is outstanding. The assortment of sweets is fantastic, but the truffles and caramels stand out as amazing. I enjoy spicier flavors and highly recommend the 'Dragon's Sigh' and 'Ancient Pleasures' truffles and also the 'Habanero Sea Salt' caramels. Amazing.

Decadent chocolate as far as the eye can see! Helpful staff, beautiful shop, nicely displayed chocolates. A must when visiting Asheville. Makes a great gift and they will ship. We bring friends and family when they visit and we are always asked to bring something from there when we visit others. A wide variety of truffles in an assortment of... More
