Great service. Free sample of fudge when we entered. Amazing holiday treats. Super clean place, instills trust. My advice; buy it while you are there....you’ll be glad later... I recommend the chocolates, fudge, and shredded chocolates for drinking.

Great selection of ice cream, chocolates, Carmel corn, carmeled apples, +. Facility is squeaky clean. Chocolate tours as well! A bit pricey for an ice cream but you should definitely try it once!

So happy my wife and I tried this ice cream. I’m not a connoisseur of the cream, but it was SO creamy and delicious! We went back next day as well for some thing. We split a scoop of s’mores and sea salt chocolate caramel
