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

The is a store, not a restaurant. But, you can purchase chocolate delicacies from around the world right here in Carytown/Richmond. The malted milk ball selection can't be beat. Holiday candy selections are second to none. If you enjoy chocolate, this is the place to go.

I can't count how many times I have walked into this store just to smell it. However, I have tasted a lot of the specialty chocolates, truffles, and chocolate-covered-everything. The staff is helpful, and the products are quality. Go here. :)

Even the TSA agents got friendlier when they saw the bag. This store has a remarkable array of chocolates and other candies from around the world. The handmade confections behind the counter justify a trip to Richmond.

A chocolateholics paradise! I bought several Christmas gifts there, as well as a dark chocolate candy bar for my step-daughter who is quite the critic of candy. This store has an amazing array of candy, not just chocoate. It is fun to look around!

I am originally from Baltimore Maryland. I was in Richmond visiting my daughter for a few days and she took me to this cute shopping area called Carytown. It was enough to make me consider relocating because the convenience of all the different kind of shops is amazing! I found heaven when I walked into FOR THE LOVE OF CHOCOLATE!... More
