Awesome chocolate, way overpriced. There was definitely a wide variety of goodies. We got milk and dark turtles, and a pecan caramel chocolate something whose name I forget. All very good, just expensive.

By far the best ice cream I've ever had, the apple pie ice cream was amazing. Do yourself a favor and stop in for a sweet treat to enjoy while walking around the historic market!

Don't buy the pralines they were expensive and not good. I can't speak of anything else in the shop because I only bought pralines to bring back to my husband and friend. Both said they were not good pralines.

We stopped here for ice cream to take on our stroll through Charleston and everyone was pleased. The toasted coconut was amazing. Others in our group had praline and cookies n cream and they loved theirs as well. Fast service as well

Sea salted caramel is excellent, peanut butter pie is apparently their best seller. A single scoop will run you about $4-$5 bucks while a double is about $8. We didn't try any of the chocolate treats but if they are anything like the ice cream all I can say is WOW!
