Stopped in for a look at the renovated depot, which turned my husband's head, and the candies, which turned mine! Friendly staff offered a sample while we tried to decide. Many delicious sounding truffle flavors to choose from...we settled on toasted coconut, coffee, dark chocolate,...and a spicy dark, all of which were well made and wonderful. Did not buy more as we were traveling on a hot day and they would not have survived the heat, but would certainly recommend.More

There is a huge variety of chocolates, candies, and indulgences to satisfy your sweet fang. We chose the small package of dark chocolate coconut clusters $6, small peanut brittle $6, and chocolate covered Oreos $1 each. If you want to be more decadent, there is...a refrigerated case with all flavors of truffles from chocolate chipotle to key lime to rum. Bottles of wine are available too.More

So happy to have discovered this chocolate shop. You can taste the freshness in everything and what a wonderful variety of flavors and packaged treats. This is the kind of place that you must stop to stock-up on really great candy if you are near...Abilene.More

This small place is a nice surprise and it is fun to show off to visitors for that very reason. Chocolate lovers will be VERY happy this place. Plus, if you want lollypops, you can find those, too. The aroma walking through the door makes...your mouth water. You know you are in the right place to take care of that sweet tooth! Not a restaurant...just a super little candy shop with nice employees and great cooks!More

The place is always spotless clean and the chocolate delights are always fresh and easily identifiable. They often allow samples as well. Love that they have wine too which helps tie a chocolate gifttogether
