Came here to buy part of a Christmas gift for a family membe. They have really unique items. They even had a section of stuff made in Virginia. It was a little pricey, but still worth it. I love chocolate!

This is probably the best chocolate store I have ever visited. A real taste of the Fine European chocolates. The collection is amazing! The staff provided topnotch service without intruding or pushing any products. You will find a wide range of prices. Difficult to walk out without buying!

We went to Carytown to explore. We had heard about this place. So, we went inside. They have almost everything - every type of candy and likely all of your childhood favorites that you had forgotten. My wife found some candy that she had loved as a child and bought a bagful. They have a lot of candy in display... More
