Great little shop with a great look and SMELL. If you are anywhere near Independence Park you should take the 5 minute walk down to this chocolate shop. Don't use google...just go near the parking garage and smell your way there - its that awesome.

We happened upon this cute local chocolate shop and the employees were so helpful and I loved the peanut butter filled milk chocolates and a store special - chocolate Easter baskets.

Thanks for finding us Mary Jo. Peanut butter is a weakness for (I think)all of us at Lore's!

A lot of people go here, and this is one of the best chocolate that I ever had. They have different kinds of chocolates and different shapes and things. They have chocolate shaped as the Liberty Bell!
