I'm not sure where you were but this review has nothing to do with our shop. We only sell our own chocolates. Do not sell Asher's. And we don't sell fudge.

Feeling down, losing your hair, pimple on your nose? Take one bite of this chocolate deliciousness and all will be well. Extraordinary hand dipped chocolates with unique and standard flavors. Conveniently located in downtown Portland.

Amazing chocolatier in Portland. A vast variety of truffle and treats for the whole family. Very good hot chocolate to give as a gift.

My husband is highly allergic to nuts so we're often nervous about trying new chocolate shops since many of them don't clean their equipment between batches. Dean's looked so good, though, that we went in and asked about it and we were delighted to learn...More

I went to this place because a friend of mine requested dark chocolates, and by the time we were able to look for a place, many chocolate shops were closed. I am quite glad we ended up here. They have some interesting flavors, like spicy...More

Great to find a no nut bakery. Having a tree nut allergy can be a problem in places like this. Nice to be able to choose any chocolate without worry. We tried several truffles & the bacon toffee. The truffles were not as flavorful or...More
