I became a chocolate lover while I was in Belgium last year. Since then, I've found it difficult to find chocolate that can compare to the quality I found over in Belgium. This place is great because I can choose from a range of chocolate products from around the world, as well as the chocolate they sell in their case.... More

This must be the store with most extensive selection of chocolates as well as other candies in the Richmond area. They have many products from foreign countries; so you don't have to rely on the usual USA standbys. Be aware that these fancy candy bars mostly cost at least $3.99 per bar with prices going up to $7.99, maybe more.

Someone who has died and gone to heaven, returned to Carytown and opened this candy shop. The place is wall to wall and the center is homemade chocolates. A must if you have a sweet tooth. Put it of your bucket list. Then get it off quickly.

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!
