Customer Reviews

Talking about the history and different types of chocolate where it grows was very interesting Samples were great They made you think about the different tastes Staff was great
Louise W. · 6 days ago
It was so interesting to hear about how and where chocolate is grown and produced. The samples were delicious--and the accompanying information made us feel as if we were engaged in an educational pursuit rather than just indulging ourselves! Hodie and her staff made us feel very welcome and were so generous in sharing their expertise. A delightful experience.
