“Gourmet Chocolate place in a little town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

They have great chocolate that you can't buy at your grocery store.
These are the kind of chocolate that I want to make a special time at the end of a day, to appreciate and enjoy the art of Chocolatier. They are not cheap, but if you are a kind of person who likes dark and rich flavor chocolate, this might be a place for your chocolate fix.

And they have some cool stuff other than chocolates too. Wonderful smelling candles and soaps, cute aprons, nostalgic looking cards, and cool looking nic nacs...
Inside this place, it looked like it just came out of magazine. Like somebody already wrote, you wouldn't think this sort of place in this little TX town.
I personally, enjoyed even just looking around this place.

“Yum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

The sample box is so yummy! you get 2 huge pecan clusters @ the bottom of the box. It can be expensive, but it isn't your russell stovers type of cheap chocolate. They make unique flavors also.

“Who would have thought...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

Specialty chocolate shop in Hico, TX? Really neat little shop with lots of interesting curios & such inside, not just chocolates. If you're driving through the area, it's worth a browse!

“Wonderful Chocolate Escape”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

This is a beautifully appointed shop full of different chocolates (and other gifts and surprises). I took one of my cousins from California. It almost convinced him that moving to Texas is a good idea!

“True chocolatier chocolates”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

Excellent chocolates and fun shop to browse. Displays and items ( other than chocolate) change frequently enough to make shopping here every other month or so interesting (don't live here but drive through the area a couple of times a month)...definite "find" for chocolate lovers!
