I've been buying truffles from the Chocolate Fetish for close to twenty years. I try to sample their seasonal offerings but my favorite truffle is the Ancient Treasures (think Mexican Hot Chocolate, so delicious and warming) and the Velvet Sin. Whenever I buy a dozen I have to get my sister in law a few of the French Velvet since... More

I love Chocolate Fetish! I've been going here for years and have yet to get amazing truffles like these anywhere else! The flavors are innovative without being too weird! The lavender flavored Midsummer's Dream is my favorite, but I also love Mountain Sunrise (orange), Velvet Sin, and Chai Moon.

Excellent place to satisfy your sweet tooth. Everything is freshly made on premise. A bit pricey, but worth every penny.

I know everyone (including me) loves the chocolate lounge. But, this is the original Asheville Chocolate shop. It has nostalgic charm and delicious chocolate and coffee beverages minus the really long line! In the summer time, they have my favorite truffle IN THE WORLD. yes, that's right, IN THE WORLD. It is a basil and pistachio truffle and I highly... More

Even if you aren't a chocolate fan--does such a thing exist?--you should visit this place just to see all the ways you can consume chocolate! The staff is so helpful, explaining the ins and outs of candies, ice(s), ice creams, pastries, etc. And patient! It took my daughter so long that she "went to the back of the line" to... More

Loved this place! The staff was friendly and patient as we chose what we would order. The prices were more than fair, considering what you could charge for chocolate before anyone batted an eye. The selection was what really made the experience though. Tons of unique, interesting chocolates to chose from, and everything we got was delicious.

I will do a disclaimer and say that we visited on new years eve about 10min. Before closing. That being said I ran in quickly because I wanted to have a chance to try the chocolate that some other reviewers said was the best they had ever had, and that was the only time I had the chance to go....

I read the reviews before we went and wanted to see for myself just how good it was. It was definitely worth the trip. Yes, it is expensive but we got out of there with about $17 worth of chocolate which included two large discs and 6 sea salt caramels. I should've tried the truffles, but there is always next...
