We have stopped here on multiple occasions and always loved there chocolate. I love the fact that it is made in house. If you get a change stop by here and get some of there great chocolate.

I really wanted to like the chocolate, since the reviews were so high. And maybe my chocolate palate just is not refined enough but neither my husband nor I liked the chocolates we bought (which seems very expensive). I did, however, enjoy the chocolate chip...More

We love this place! Unfortunately, we arrived just before closing, so we had to hurry through 30 or 40 different chocolate selections and make our choices. We did so, and are happy campers as a result.

I love this place. I always get the suite of dairy free chocolate truffles, plus the berry bar. I think their chocolate covered cherries are better than cherry republic. Lots of choices, high quality chocolate.

Found this place on Trip Advisor. So glad we stopped. My daugvter had the mint truffles and these were the mosy authentic mint flavor/taste. None of the fake flavorings used in commercial truffles. Chocolate is smooth and not grainy. We also ordered the ice cream...More

We just happened to pass this on our way into some trails and of course saw the word Chocolate, so we did a quick U-turn. The chocolate just melts in your mouth and was amazing with our s'mores later that evening.

Description
We are a small family-owned craft chocolate business that focuses on sourcing as many local ingredients as possible. Our chocolate is fairly traded from Ecuador and Venezuela and of the highest quality. We LOVE great chocolate and we look forward to sharing it with you. Because we are committed to sourcing the best ingredient - local dairy, honey, fruits, spirits, etc - and chocolate, our prices are higher than what you'll find at a typical chocolate shop.
