    Hazelnut wafer and raspberry dark chocolate. Grab them to go, gift em, or grab a latte/coffee/hot chocolate and perch yourself while passerby's gaze with chocolate envy.

    LOVE Fran's Chocolates. I appreciate that everything from their chocolates to boxes with ribbons are hand made/done. Try out their port + chocolate samplings!

    Salted caramels have a special place in my heart and the correct way to eat them is upside down with the salt side on your tongue. Enjoy!

    Indulge in one of their classic gold-foil-wrapped chocolate ingots, or savor their grey salt and smoked salt caramels—they're rich, intense, and deeply flavorful. Read more

    Awesome selection of chocolates but they're not cheap. Single malt bourbon pieces are my favorites.

    The "Obama Chocolates" aka the salted chocolate caramels are a must as is the oolong tea chocolate

    Awesome staff and of course, the chocolate. The salted caramel is saltier than I thought, but interesting.
