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

This place is wild! First visit was amazing! I think I walked out with (purchased) 5 pounds or so of candy. They have so many types and flavors and assortments of most types or candy. From imported to local. It's all delicious!! Check it out! But don't go hungry are you'll buy too much:-)!

Thank Lou S
