I can die happy

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... read more

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...

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

This simply is one of the best restaurants in the city. Just walking in the Jefferson Hotel where it is located is a treat. I'm been in some great European hotels in my travels and this can rival any of them.

I purchased one pound of chocolate for my husband's Christmas and our Beale (Waldo) helped himself to the gift and I had to make a return trip to purchase same.

This is by far one of the stops you MUST make when visiting Carytown in Richmond, Va. The aroma of the many chocolates will hit you the minute you step foot into the store. Everyone is so friendly and there is always plenty of staff to be sure your sweet tooth is satisfied. I love the chocolate selections in the... More

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.
