I could not believe a store could ever have so much chocolate & candy. The staff were great and very helpful. If you are looking for something special this is the store to go to as it had a huge assortment of stuff, including gifts.

Find chocolate and candies made by a great company. When in Batavia this is a must stop the only problem is there's so many things to buy and a homemade ice cream is outstanding.

Tours are free but need to be done between 9am and 3:30pm weekdays. This is when we are in production. The tour can take around 15-20 min depending on group size.
