The chocolate was fantastic! My kids ate 1/2 lb in 10 minutes then wanted to go back! The guys behind the counter were super friendly. Will definitely order a few boxes as gifts for my college kids!

This place has a wide selection of goodies. The fudge is what I call "Beach fudge", that is thick, soft and tasty. You cannot go wrong stopping in here and indulging.
