We went on a day that the factory wasn't running, but we still went up to the viewing room to check it out. We got a pretty good sampling of the chocolate and everything was delicious. The chocolate covered strawberries and raspberries were amazing.

Good selection of candies. They have more than just chocolate. They'll also ship if you want to send a gift. They have sugar-free candy for diabetics, so I took my sister a box.
