We stopped here for something to do while camping. Lots of fun molded chocolate to look at (and buy). They have a good selection of ice cream flavors to choose from. They also have fudge which is one of my son's favorites.

Drove about hour from our cabin, the chocolate wasn't the best I ever had neither was the fudge, had better at the fair. The toffee wasn't good Heath bars are so much better. Friendly people work there thou

This is an excellent stop to cool off on a hot summer day! They have an awesome selection of hand dipped ice cream and the prices just can't be beat. After a long hike or a day spent swimming at Dixon Springs, there is no better way to treat yourself and cool down. Plus, there is all the tempting chocolate... More

Great homemade chocolate treats, candy, and fudge. Also a great place to stop in for a hand scooped ice cream cone after a hike at Dixon Springs State park right across the road, or a day swimming in the pool at Dixon Springs State Park. They also carry chocolates for melting and some cake pans for your own baking needs.... More

Chocolate in this state is DANGEROUS. Do not stop here if you are on a diet, value your present weight and you want to keep it that way. We're staying at the state park across the way, I had my wallet with me on a bike ride and I failed to temptation. Started with an ice cream cone and it... More

Love the HUGE variety! Something for everyone...and my favorite--hand-dipped ice cream! Perfect place to stop in after a hike at Dixon Springs State Park.

Happened to pass this tiny shop in rural Illinois and had to go in. The chocolates are incredible in both look and in taste. If you are near here, you have to go in. Bon Appetite!

Having just got off the Interstate and entering the park, the first thing on our minds was a bathroom and walk the dogs. We came to this wonderful place on the right called the Chocolate Factory. We pulled in but as soon as we did the local police noticed us and pulled in behind us to see what we were... More

Great little chocolate store with yummy ice cream as well. They had some really unique chocolates. Could have a little more variety in the gourmet chocolate section but what they have is very good. A little pricey but worth a trip.
