Service was good, selection was good. I find candy stores fairly prices but everything is hand made so the prices are in line with other handmade candy stores.

Yes, the other chocolate place is more famous, but personally, I like The Fudge Factory much better. The kids working the cases and register are super friendly and always have a sample ready. Now, my favorite holiday sweetum used to be the super good peppermint...More
