All chocolates and candies are professionally wrapped and presented. Vletas also mails you gift. These treats are fabulous and will make you want to order or purchase in person to sample new treats.

This is a favorite spot when family and friends come to visit. Don't miss the dark chocolate sea salt caramels. Total yummy-ness!

Their selection of chocolates is outstanding, as are the chocolates themselves. Stopped in after a downtown walkabout to find the statues with visiting family and everyone found something exciting to try. The only reason they don't get 5 stars is their hours. It can be hard to get to them some days. They are definitely worth the effort.

The chocolate is THE BEST! If you're a local, or visiting Abilene, you must go! Makes great gifts. Located in a historic building, downtown Abilene. Family recipes used for generations! Friendly staff. Worth every penny..it's delicious!

This is a candy shop of decadent goodies! Stopped by here after lunch at Cypress Street Cafe for something sweet. Bought my Mom and Wife some said goodies and myself the peanut butter cups. Premium candies are by far better than store milk chocolates. The service was great with some historic building facts thrown in. We will stop by to... More

I used to buy the frozen chocolate covered grapes for all of my clients on special days of the year. The location is an old train station which is cool, but the chocolates are 5 star quality. You can tell everything is made with love!!

This is my go-to place when I'm looking for a special treat for a friend's birthday or as a pick-me-up. You can't beat their chocolate covered strawberries on Valentine's Day or their peanut brittle. About half the time, the workers don't acknowledge me until I'm checking out. Since it's a small shop, I expect a little personalized service. Their treats... More

Vletas has a huge assortment of wonderful chocolate and brittle, but my absolute favorite are their chocolate covered Strawberrys and chocolate covered grapes. They will not disappoint! Delicious! You men out there can't go wrong with a gift from here. They do a fabulous job with gift wrapping too!

Thank Debbie S
