Great dark chocolate truffles!

Great quality of dark chocolates blended in house. A large variety of truffles available from a trio of chocolates to a couple of my favorites were the Blossom with lemon zest, ginger, and a hint of saffron and then there was the Key Lime made with a graham cracker crust. Yummm

Skip the lines over at the French Broad Chocolate Lounge and head here for the best chocolate in town! It's hard to go wrong as everything these guys sell is world class but I would recommend the peanut butter bites in dark chocolate as a good place to start. Great value for the money too!

The owner's daughter is an artist and has created beautiful and artistic chocolate pieces. When I was there, she had created "ladies shoes", "fall leaves", etc.. It was so different from any chocolate store that I had ever been in. Fantastic!

It was good chocolate, not the best I've ever had, and rather pricey. It's a very cute shop and they have a nice selection.

It was very interesting to watch the chocolate being made through a viewing window. The owner explained to our group the origins of the chocolate and the process they use to produce unusual flavors. I particularly like the dragon sigh with wasabi flavor and the caramal with sea salt topping.

The chocolate we purchased from here is the finest chocolate we have ever tasted. There is such a huge variety of chocolates to choose from. The staff is so friendly, knowledgeable, and glad to help and answer questions. We loved the chocolate we purchased. I am so glad that we found this wonderful place.

This was a stop on the food tour, but we had planned to go anyway due to my trip research. Chocolate is fantastic! Great variety of specialty truffles, try something interesting and different!

Not only were the staff friendly and attentive, the chocolates are fantastic! If you like dark chocolate and chili try the "Ancient Treasures". Absolute nirvana. :)
