Yearly stop and it never disappoints! We all have our favorites but my personal fav is the pecan praline. The kids liked the watermelon and my husband's all about the peanut butter and chocolate. The coffee is yummy too!

Thought we were going for some great chocolate, which they most certainly have. The coffee was amazing too. Friendly young lady served us, she was so friendly and knew her stuff. The smell was incredible, chocolate and coffee. Oh yeah.
