Reviewed July 30, 2013

The chocolate is locally made and is fabulous. The truffles are my favorite. It is pricey, but delicious. The ice cream sundaes are wonderful as well,.

“Chocolate!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Fun tour, fun to see behind the scene of how the chocolate gets produced. Tour cost was a little pricey for what you get, I would have liked it more if more samples were given.

Glad you enjoyed the tour! We're sorry that you didn't get as many samples as you would have liked. Most people are very happy with the samples given but we can understand someone wanting more.

As for the price, the tour cost $5 for which you are given a $5 coupon good on any purchase of $10 or more. So for anyone spending $10, the tour is essentially free. We've had thousands of people take our tour and the overwhelming majority of feedback we get is very positive as can be seen in our other reviews. We're sorry that you felt is was only average. That is certainly not the standard at DeBrand.

“Best sundaes in the world”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

DeBrand chocolate is outstanding, of course. But for a real treat, have one of their ice cream sundaes. Homemade ice cream (one or two scoops), in a chocolate cup (your choice of milk or dark). Drizzled -- or more appropriately decorated -- with your choice of toppings. I always get the peanut butter and milk chocolate. A little pricey, but oh what a delightful and yummy treat~

“Chocolate Lover's Dream”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

SImple truth: EVERYTHING at DeBrand's Fine Chocolates is wonderful. My favorites are the truffles. Specifically, I love the dark chocolate truffle and the caramel truffle. The caramel is NOT that stick-in-your-teeth chewy kind; it's a rich, thick, buttery, syrup-like caramel filling. Also, I love the pecan turtles. I'm happy to claim DeBrand's as the best chocolate anywhere (better than Ghirardeli, Godiva, etc.). And, I'm happy it's in my home town!
