My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this FREE tour to watch chocolates being made. After the presentation, samples of everything were available. The dark chocolate covered grapes were AMAZING and something I had never had. Well worth the stop. All our chocolate was delish!

Such a selection of quality Chocolates in a beautifully displayed "showroom." Patient staff who are eager to help and provide suggestions for choosing just the right flavor. Ample samples and generous pricing, what's not to love?!
