TRUFFLES! OMG Chocolate. I love pretty much everything in this store. Maybe not so much the attitudes of the workers...but the chocolate makes up for it. TRUFFLES!

They have a great selection. It is a tight ship. Hard to move around in there. The prices are a little high but it is good quality candy.

This place is a must visit whenever you're in Cary Town. get a good chocolate fix here always, but I like to get in and out quickly, and this place is very cramped, with far too much going on inside... take my advice, have your goal in mind before you step inside, and stick to it !

You'll feel like a kid in this candy shop. I bring out of town visitors here for a treat after shopping or visiting historic sites around town.

If you're looking for that chocolate bar from XYZ country that you haven't been able to find since XYZ country, then you'll likely find it (or something similar) here. If it's not, then they can order it for you. I've enjoyed poking around and sampling their smaller bars (50cent, or $1) samplers that you can use to narrow down whether... More

My friend is a regular at this place so we met here before lunch. Now I know why I have avoided this place. I'm not a big chocolate fan but they have such a variety of candy types in this store that it's truly amazing. From cookies, chocolate covered twinkies, Oreo's and pretzels to gummies, M&M's to much much more.... More

FtLoC is the best "candy store" I've ever set foot it. Rarely do I get the same thing twice because there's always something new or intriguing that catches my eye. The staff is always extremely friendly too, and I've more than once gotten caught up in conversation because they're so easy to interact with!

I can't believe I haven't left a review yet for FtLoC! It's basically Willy Wonka's storeroom, filled with soo many goodies! Right when you walk in, the smell hits you. Being a chocoholic myself, I love perusing the shelves in the front half of the store. On the right wall, they have mix-and-match jars, and I always get a bag... More

The pictures on the internet do not do this place justice. It is amazing wall to wall chocolate from every country with good prices. They had so much to choose from in bagged candy to candy bars to chocolate drinks and homemade fudge. I drove a hour out of my way to visit this store and was not disappointed. Will... More
