I stop here frequently to purchase special treats for friends and family on birthdays or holidays. The product is, of course, second to none. Their chocolates are the best to be found. The atmosphere is unique and the employees are friendly, helpful, and go to great lengths to make your experience at Wiseman House memorable.

If you want to feel like you just walked in your front door of your house this place is for you. The chocolate is too die for all made by hand at the Wiseman House.

Walk into this quiet shop and be sweetly greeted and charmed by the offerings of teas, coffees, and the best chocolate ever. Sit on the porch and savor your purchase.

The chocolate is made in downtown Hico and sold at the Wiseman House on Hwy 6 in Hico. They are generous with samples to assist you in choosing your favorite. The truffles and barks are fabulous and in so many flavors coated with either dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate. My granddaughter loves the sipping chocolate. It can be... More

This place is great. A fair amount of selection sold in many different ways; single truffles, bars, pieces, boxes. Wonderful gift/home shop. Nothing bright or overdone, classic dessert sets and tea accessories. I was lucky enough to tour the factory and can assure that they use high-quality ingredients in a very clean environment.

We have been by Wiseman House hundreds of times but had no idea what was inside until a friend told us about their chocolates. We stopped by while going through Hico & were surprised to find a great passion for handmade chocolates inside! From so many different varieties of truffles to toffees to chocolate-covered offerings, it's entirely too hard to... More
