It's stepping into a chocoholic's dream

Wall to wall candy and chocolate. If there was a special brand of candy you liked, you can find it hear. The hand made candy was delicious. Dark chocolate raspberry jellies are some of my favorites and they did not disappoint. If you are wandering through Carytown, this is a must stop.

Don't go in there hungry, you will be sorry. I gain weight just waling in the place. If you are looking for something special for a gift, truffles, bonbons you name it they have it.

Everything from rare chocolates and candies from other countries to the candies you enjoyed as a little kid... this place has it all. It can take you a good 25 minutes to get through the store because everything is packed in and there are SO many options! There homemade stuff is delicious!

Whenever we need a special gift or just something to soothe our sweet tooth this is the first place that comes to mind. Not only chocolate, but most any candy you can think of. The staff is so helpful and make great suggestions.

No visit to Carytown in Richmond is complete without a visit to "For the Love of Chocolate" I have been coming to this shop for over 10 years-EVERY time I visit Richmond. The staff has changed over the years but not the friendliness or service!

Everything chocolate...and quite a bit of candy. Great for gifts, even gag gifts. I could blow my Christmas budget on candy/chocolate stocking stuffers. My favorite: get a bag and fill it with the chocolate covered delights in the bins: chocolate covered dried cherries, ginger bits, raspberries, hazelnuts. Mmmmmm... Located near a large parking lot.(If it's full, go up a block... More

Hello, I am Nigel's Mom and I am obsessed with chocolate. This is a long standing relationship with an addictive substance. I guess it started as a child in St. Louis, where my Grandmother made her own Nonpariels. Sometimes she even made them with colored sprinkles. It did not help that we lived in a city with TWO major local... More
