We enjoyed visiting both stores. The one in town was much busier. The staff at both were very nice and let us try some samples.

Thank you for your review. Sounds like you might have visited our factory store. While both of our stores are large, the factory store seems to have something different around every corner, including our large chocolate production area. Please visit again and tell your friends...More

They offer a big variety of fudge flavors to choose from. A bad thing for me as I don't need any of it! I ended up going with the basic vanilla and chocolate anyway. Chocolate goodies seem to be their specialty, with truffles, bark, turtles,...More

As to whether or not they give tours, I can't answer, but you can see how they make the candy, as they have a glass wall set up so you can see the process of their making candy. It's pretty neat
