How can you spend so much for so little? Some of the best chocolate I've had! It's expensive but you'll soon forget the price tag when your sitting on your deck with a glass of port and a piece of the incredible chocolate.

This shop/business specializes in Peruvian chocolates, although it now also carries Indian and Peruvian silver jewellry and other stuff. However, its reason for being is the chocolate. Hand made, expensive, and out of this world. Many varieties of white, milk and dark, some with fresh fruits, others with nuts and fillings, or just plain. Cannot go wrong.

All candies are made on site! There are so many types to chose from your head may spin. My biggest discovery was NEEDHAMS. It is a Maine specialty. When you try one ( and you must) you will understand I need not say more. She, also, carries a line of handmade items from Peru. There is costume jewelry everywhere......well priced!

Monica runs her shop right out of the end of her house - it's a stand alone that has become a destination largely because of her way with gourmet chocolates. She uses Peruvian chocolate to create her own recipes for seashore based creations: pecan sand dollars, caramel and peanut butter sea cucumbers, etc. She also has some gourmet foods and... More

As you walk thru the door, Monica is usually there to greet you. She always asks if it is your first visit there and if so, she will treat you with a free chocolate. On occasion, she will bring you downstairs and explain how they make their chocolates. On one of my visits, they were in the process of making... More

Friendly staff, delicious candy and great selection of jewelry. Free samples and if you ask you may get a tour of the kitchen where the magic happens.

there was not a huge selection of chocolate, but the dark chocolate peanut butter cups were fantastic! The chopped peanut sprinkle on the top was a real plus!

Okay, they are incredible. Monica knows her chocolate. The bonbons with Carmel and fruit inside are heavenly. They are very expensive... But great for a treat.
