“Tasty!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

The shop smells like Wilka Wonka's Chocolate Factory! Wish I could bottle that smell. I had the homemade ice cream-unique flavor offerings. I chose chocolate caramel cashew. Delicious! Several options in the candy section although I did not sample any. They all looked great though. If you are a dessert lover, stop in this place.

“A nice treat”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

The wonderful smells are overwhelming as you walk in the door - in a good way! Chocolate and Carmel smells of delight. We had mint chip, cookie dough and their own turtle mix ice creams. All were super creamy. The turtle was a bit disappointing with not much flavor but the pecans in the turtle were delicious. $5 for a single scoop was on the high side for the value but typical for a tourist spot. Service was good. Fun, energetic kids working the counter were highly engaged and always smiling.

“Mouthwatering...”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

As soon as you open the door, the heavenly smell captures you! My husband and I stop by every time we are in the area for a small treat! We enjoy many of their chocolate candies. The prices are reasonable, well worth the money, and everything tastes fresh and like it was just made for you! I haven't ever tried their ice cream for I'm not big on ice cream but I'm sure it's savory as well! Enjoy!

“Ok”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

I got chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream. It was fine but I have had better store bought ice cream. The candy looked good but didn't try any. Service was very slow.
