Yearly stop and it never disappoints! We all have our favorites but my personal fav is the pecan praline. The kids liked the watermelon and my husband's all about the peanut butter and chocolate. The coffee is yummy too!

They had a nice variety of sweets and other offerings like jerky and popcorn. Bought some cajun chocolate which was awesome.

Thought we were going for some great chocolate, which they most certainly have. The coffee was amazing too. Friendly young lady served us, she was so friendly and knew her stuff. The smell was incredible, chocolate and coffee. Oh yeah.

The staff were friendly but the chocolates and fudge were dissatisfying. We got the Cade's cove truffles. They were awful. The peanut butter fudge was good. We got another flavor that I think was called tiger something. It wasn't that great.More

Perhaps when you purchased this truffle you were long gone from the store when you ate it. We would have gladly refunded your money or offered you another truffle to sample. Our staff usually offers samples of the fudge. We try to give our guests...More
