The others are pretty good, but when it comes to the chocolates, no one comes even close to WITTICH'S !

You have to try the buckeyes. Actually, anything you try there is good. They do a great job at providing a special touch to gifts.

Great homemade candies. The ladies hand dipping the chocolates have been working there for years. The buckeyes and turtles are amazing.

Great selection of every candy you can think of.Homemade chocolates. And many choices of ice cream. I've been here twice. The first time was for a root beer float which I would not recommend. But the second time I tried one of the other ice creams just in a dish. That was divine.
