Seeing the reviews, I am a little surprised because we enjoyed the chocolate more than we expected. Food (4/5) - We thought the truffles and other chocolate coated items were tasty, not buttery and not excessive in sweetness. Notable: orange peel, peanut butter truffle and hazelnut truffle. Service (4/5) - The young man at the counter was very polite and... More

Purchased a pound of dark chocolate covered orange jellies. Used to get these when it different owner at Kingston Pike location. They were the best. These were horrible. The jelly center was gritty, crunchy sugar. To expensive not to be better quality. I won't be back.

We spotted this store while walking over to the Sunsphere and decided to stop in on the way back to the car. The store is huge -- many more square feet than needed for the merchandise they offer -- so it feels sort of unfinished/empty. The cases were jam packed, though, with individual chocolates, all arranged beautifully. However, we could... More

this place has been around for a long time. The candy is great but the price is terrible. It is a nice location where there is plenty to do, like the art museum, or the World's Fair Park.

Some very cool and fun items - and definitely buy a "Tennessee Walking Stick" - a pretzel in caramel with pecans, coated in either white or dark chocolate. Picked up a box for our clients while I was there, and it was a huge hit!

I have shopped here since its incarnation. It has changed hands since then, but I am happy that the overall mood of the place didn't change. They still do the chocolate strawberries for Valentine's Day, and have gift items as well as freshly-made candy. It's a good place to go for gifts or to satisfy a chocolate craving.

Only one person working the counter so we had to wait a while to be helped. Prices are high -but the treats were tasty. Can view items being made through windows. Chocolate melts very quickly. Even holding in hand while in line they will melt. Next to the art museum and near the sunsphere so it makes it the perfect... More

Definitely stop by if you're in the area. The chocolate is perfect! My boys got a chocolate play station controller. Chocolate in all sorts of weird shapes. Dark chocolate sea salt caramels & chocolate peanut butter cup bark OMG. Right near the entrance to World's Fair Park.

I came here when walking through Worlds Fair Park. The staff was really friendly. They make all of the chocolate on site, and you can see into the production from the sales floor. The chocolate was delicious...I brought back a piece for everyone in my family, but wish I'd brought back two after tasting it!
