“THE best chocolate!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

In our opinion and the LA Times as well! There are so many types of truffles to choose from you just have to finally make a decision as to which and how many you want. We love dark chocolate and bought a mix of about 8 of them to share. Before we left Asheville, we bought more!! Highly recommended!!!!

There is one called Dragon's Breath that is to die for!

“A must visit for any chocolate lover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Like any well made chocolate, one doesnt' have to eat a large quantity to be satisfied. Try the chcolate curry truffles and the African dark chocolate truffles. My friends were more adventurous. I usually stick with the salted caramels--dark and milk. I love the frogs with pistachos. The chcolate covered fruit--lemon and orange peel were quite good. I will be more daring on my next visit and sample some of the more unusual combinations.

“Fullfilled my festish!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Sipping chocolate is DIVINE!it is what hot xhocolate shold be-melted scraps mixed with cream...4oz is plenty!
We also got a few truffles,and a chocolate disc-flavors included black diamond, africian queen,chili powder and wine&rose. african queen was my fav. Pricey for the chocolate pieces,typical store look BUT if you within the mall area it is connected too you can see their kitchen area and then de,orating and making the chocolates. Pretty cool!

“Excellent Truffles and Sipping Chocolate, Yum!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Out of the two "don't miss" chocolate places in Asheville this is our favorite, though the selection here is admittedly more limited (but the line is much shorter!!). The Chocolate Fetish is for truffles - we tried many, from key lime to wine and roses (infused dark chocolate) to one with wasabi (!!), etc., etc. and couldn't find one we didn't like! To top it off we split a cup of sipping chocolate - think really thick and delectable hot chocolate - and again we found our favorite here (vs. the "other guys"). If you're looking for a gift they have really beautiful 'painted" chocolates as well - in October they had pumpkins and turkeys, imagine in December they have many holiday options. Limited seating as well - more of a pick up and go place. But again the quality of what they specialize in is amazing!
