The candy here is both tasty and beautiful. And the staff is always willing to answer questions. I've been there on some busy days (two days before Christmas and on Valentine's Day) and the staff is still very nice.

I've been buying truffles from the Chocolate Fetish for close to twenty years. I try to sample their seasonal offerings but my favorite truffle is the Ancient Treasures (think Mexican Hot Chocolate, so delicious and warming) and the Velvet Sin. Whenever I buy a dozen I have to get my sister in law a few of the French Velvet since... More

I love Chocolate Fetish! I've been going here for years and have yet to get amazing truffles like these anywhere else! The flavors are innovative without being too weird! The lavender flavored Midsummer's Dream is my favorite, but I also love Mountain Sunrise (orange), Velvet Sin, and Chai Moon.

Excellent place to satisfy your sweet tooth. Everything is freshly made on premise. A bit pricey, but worth every penny.

I know everyone (including me) loves the chocolate lounge. But, this is the original Asheville Chocolate shop. It has nostalgic charm and delicious chocolate and coffee beverages minus the really long line! In the summer time, they have my favorite truffle IN THE WORLD. yes, that's right, IN THE WORLD. It is a basil and pistachio truffle and I highly... More

Even if you aren't a chocolate fan--does such a thing exist?--you should visit this place just to see all the ways you can consume chocolate! The staff is so helpful, explaining the ins and outs of candies, ice(s), ice creams, pastries, etc. And patient! It took my daughter so long that she "went to the back of the line" to... More
