I would never go to Beaufort without stopping at the Chocolate Tree. I got Salt Water Taffy for my grand kids, a half pound selection of dark chocolate creams for me, and a large b ag of melting chocolate and a mold and accessories to make chocolate lollypops for Christmas gifts. The chocolate is of the highest quality. Lots of... More

I try to stop at the Chocolate Tree every time I'm in Beaufort. The chocolate is always fresh and the variety amazing for a small town shop. I like the general collection of exotic truffles and the great chocolate turtles shaped like turtles. The prices are reasonable and the service is super friendly.

The chocolate is wonderful and the service friendly. Everyone receives a free sample because once you taste it, you will purchase . There are lots of choices : unique items for children and adults. The prices are quite reasonable for good chocolate.

Yummy little place. Not as big as we thought it'd be... and they weren't making anything when we visited. The prices, I thought, were a little high. However, that said, the staff was very friendly and the chocolate was very yummy. Glad we stopped by.

While vacationing in Beaufort, we just HAD to stop at The Chocolate Tree. As we entered the store, the chocolate smell was delicious. There are so many varieties, the hardest thing was to decide what to purchase. We decided on several of their dark chocolate treats. Wow! Were they scrumptious. I guess we are glad that they aren't in our... More

From the moment you step through the door, the fragrance of chocolate wafts around you nostrils, drawing you further into what you soon believe to be equivalent to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. Every sort of chocolate candy awaits (not to mention every sort of jelly bean and multitudes of other sweet confections). First, they treat you with a free sample... More

If there is a "chocolate" heaven, the Chocolate Tree should provide the sweets. My wife visited Beaufort SC about 9 years ago the first time. We happened upon this "wonderful" establishment and thought we were in a heavenly dream. Of course we've been back for the delicious morsels and hope to have many more visits.

I loved this place. The hardest part was deciding what to get. I selected some butter creams, sesame brittle (really good!), some toffee, and something called gator bait, which was a conglomeration of nuts, chocolate, toffee and more. Things were a little pricey but the quality and taste was first rate.

The staff were all very friendly and held conversations with us. The chocolate was delicious. There was a lot of variety. We really enjoyed all of the chocolate we chose, but we do highly recommend the salted caramel in both milk and dark chocolate.

We went there as part of a tour. We tasted some chocolate when we first entered the store and could not leave without buying some. The chocolate is absolutely delish!!! This is the place to go if you love Forrest Gump. The box of chocolate cake from this store.
