When here just because it was a chocolate factory and who doesn’t like chocolate. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Chocolate was good probably bought mire then I should have but really wasn’t that expensive. They even have samples to try. Yum!!!!!

What more can you ask for?! Very good ice cream and chocolates. You won't be disappointed. Ice cream was very reasonably priced and you can buy the chocolate by the handful, pound, or just a few pieces that way you can try multiple kinds.

We stopped in after a day of hiking in Garden of the Gods with our kids and the icecream was great! They also have candies and chocolate for all age groups. Just a fun interesting place to stop for a rest with the kids.

Great little chocolate shop locate outside the entrance to Dixon State Park. The creativity in design choices are very imaginative. The chocolate is very good and the staff very friendly. They also have an Ice Cream counter.

Their ice cream is good but staff isn't friendly. Once our group got their ice cream then we had to get in another line of people paying for their chocolate.
