Best dark chocolate with ground almond I’ve had. Nice staff. Great dark chocolate almond bark too. I had to only get one thing but the Carmel apples looked awesome too.

This is a huge store with so many different types of chocolates you will go crazy trying to choose. You can't go wrong! It's in a plaza along with Cabot Cheese so there is something for everyone at this location.

Nice chocolates and coffee to buy. You can get factory seconds for a very decent prize. The truffle selection is awesome.

Hi Meaghan, Thank you for this review- you are absolutely right that we should be clearer about how we make our cherries and the alcohol content. We will take this into consideration going forward. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed yourselves otherwise. Best, Meghan

A good place to stop and get a sweet treat or get something to bring home. Chocolates are tasty, lots of maple treats but the fudge is grand and gf. Try the Penuche with chocolate chips, it’s wonderful.

I was new to the store. Said hello and good morning but didn’t get much response. Maybe they were still asleep. Although the chocolates looked delicious the staff wasn’t too anxious to engage in conversation so I left and probably won’t go back.Not very friendlyMore
