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!
