I always stop here just to get a few pieces of dark chocolate. You can take as few or many as you want and they weigh them and you pay by the pound. Chocolate’s wonderful. The workers there are always super friendly as well.More

@travel-hawthorne, Thank you for writing such a great review!! I'm so glad you mentioned that you can have "as few or as many" -- we love to let people pick and choose as they see fit. We have a super crew, no doubt about it....More

We popped in for something sweet and were treated to the most amazing peanut butter cup ever and an amazing caramel cashew turtle...the caramel was so fresh, so smooth and perfect, with a generous serving of nuts. Sweeten your visit with a treat from Turtle...Alley!More

This Gloucester staple has been making and selling all kinds of chocolate for years. As to their name, they produce the BEST Turtles you'll ever find. TO DIE FOR! And their dark chocolate is also a "best of".

Years we passed by without walking in. Mistake! Turtles with fruit notes to surprise and thrill the palate. Dark chocolate raspberry truffles that you will want to savor on your tongue for as long as possible. Chocolate peanut butter cups that could convert a steadfast...vegan. Hallelujah, sinners, and welcome to this cathedral of high-quality candy.More

Turtle Alley has some of the finest chocolates we've ever had! They are sold at a flat per pound rate of I think $26 a pound. Well worth it because they are exquisites!

I buy a lot of chocolate in my business, and when it comes to my own celebrations, gifts and family, I always find my way to Halley's Turtle Alley. Every Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter, we get the Dark Chocolate peanut butter and spicy PB cups...as well as all kinds of turtles. I love the Buttercrunch.More
