I went with my family and was standing next to a lady and the worker was explaining something and I understood that it was this price. Yet when she checked us out it was way more than I thought. It was great chocolate but I will never go there again cause it was way to expensive. And I live in... More

I have three vices in my life. Lobster, black raspberry ice cream, and chocolate. Today I satisfied my chocolate craving. Fortunately, I was with my wife, as she added to our "stash". What I like about that is, she buys a lot, but eats very little. Good chocolate and service.

Stumbled upon this place by chance and found all sorts of lovely chocolate delicacies! My favorite was the cookie-like wafers they make. Located right downtown and. Wet busy.

Go there for smoothness and variety (without trendy gimmickery); beautiful gift packaging when requested, and fun, courteous staff. There are other chocolateries in Asheville, I've tried them all, but the first is still the best!

At the end of the afternoon walking 'bout town we would "just surrender" and stop in for a mouthful. The variety would satisfy any chocolate lover.

We went here on our own the first day in Asheville, bought a lot of chocolates. This happened to be part of the food tour our last day in Asheville and had even more chocolate! This history of the shop and the time, passion, and care they put into their recipes is well worth a purchase here. Side note: ordered... More

Stopped in here while walking around shopping downtown. What a great variety of chocolates and inventive treats like chocolate shoes!! Purchases several different types of chocolate and was surprised at the cost. It would have been at least twice the cost if I had purchased this close to home in NYC! If you love delicious chocolate, give the Chocolate Fetish... More

The staff were friendly, and it was amazing to see the display case and all that they can do with chocolate. Not to mention that i gained 10#'s just looking!

I tried several different chocolate truffles: triple chocolate, semi-sweet, dark chocolate mint, and after midnight. I liked the semi-sweet best but all were very dark and chocolately and creamy. Good selection of lots of different chocolates.
