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

Started our tour of the storybook statues here by getting a drink and snack for the walk and came back for more! The chocolate is excellent and the gentleman there gave us great tips about the town and things to do. Thanks!

Famous around Texas, Abilene's own Vletas candy store is a musts for residents and visitors. They don't skimp on quality...or prices...but the quality makes the price worth it. Absolutely delicious and perfect for a break as you're touring downtown Abilene.

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...More
