So I decided that I wanted my family to visit the mountains for Thanksgiving this year but I did not want to visit Gatlinburg (I have been there way too many times) so my wife recommended Townsend as an alternative destination. So off to Townsend we went. We stumbled upon this cute little Mom-N-Pop called The Chocolate B'ar and decided... More

Well we stopped in around 11:30 am on a Saturday the place is very nice clean. Are dissatisfaction was that the staff that was working really could not answer a question about the frozen yogurt. The question was do you have any that is sugar free. They could not answer the question. The fact that this is a dietary question... More

The Chocolate Bar is actually much bigger than expected. Food and beverages are served, and delicious chocolate is available for purchase. There is a fudge section where one can taste test. The fudge I tried was yummy but too sweet for my taste. The chocolates I purchased were wonderfully delicious.

Being from Ohio, I always have to try buckeyes. Their buckeyes melted in my mouth. They were so good. I would go back just for the buckeyes.

My son and I chose a variety of chocolates, all were delicious. My favorite was the blueberry truffle, oh my goodness. And the dark chocolate toffee was especially good as well.

Some of the best chocolates I've had. Dark chocolate salted caramels and espresso truffles were divine!

If your looking for a sweet tooth fix this is the place to stop. T. I tried the caramel pecan on a pretzel stick and bought my husband the peanut butter and chocolate treats. We enjoyed them immensely. I was a little disappointed there was not any pastries but a few pieces of some good looking cakes.

When we stayed at a cabin, a box of chocolates and bag of coffee from the Chocolate B'ar greeted us when we arrived. Both were outstanding. The caramels with sea salt on top were fabulous. I will confess we didn't go to the actual store. The website said it was open until 6:00. But when we arrived at 5:45 it... More

Stopped in looking for ice cream (which they don't have), and ended up sampling the wonderful fudge. Bought some chocolates to take home. A little pricey, but worth it. Recommended.
