Love their candies and walking into the place just to smell the candies. Their chocolates are amazing. Even have a chocolate covered bacon for the carnivores.

Cute little shop. Samples were gone so ordered without tasting. We were not disappointed. The chocolate covered cherries were delicious. Truffles were very good. White chocolate selection was slim but delicious. Purchased for after dinner but the selections were gone before we arrived home. Yummy!

Debbie, So glad you were pleased with your selection. It's been a very busy season for Paul Thomas Chocolates and though we were out of a few items, the other 80 plus delicious chocolate morsels filled the showcase. Did you select the Blueberry Truffle? We brought it back to the showcase this week. Just out of curiosity what white chocolate... More

Not at all impressed with this candy store. Inside very cramped and stuffy. Understaffed and overpriced for the quality of the chocolates. Nothing to write home about. Hansel and Gretel in Helen is better quality and better prices.

Dear Mrs. Coleman, So sorry you did not enjoy your time at Paul Thomas Chocolates but hope you'll visit again. During the holiday season our store is very packed with goodies to purchase as gifts or for personal consumption, so it may have seemed a little cramped. With half of our store as the kitchen the retail side is narrow... More

The best Hot Cocoa!!! We needed it due to a cold front while we visited!!! Drank it as we walked around the beautiful square once in the daylight and again at night with all the gorgeous Christmas lights!!!! All kinds of chocolates made right there!!! Fun experience!!

Thank Memestorta
Lori H, Owner at Paul Thomas Chocolates, responded to this review

Yum is right. Our hot cocoa is so very rich and chocolaty but not too sweet. Also we now have a hot cocoa called Toffee Coffee. Part hot cocoa with a touch of coffee. So be sure and give it a try when you are out and about our beautiful town. More

Amazing chocolates, wow! I literally turned into a kid in a candy store. I couldn't wait to get my paws on all of my chocolate treats. Delicious, moderately priced for the excellent quality you get.

Hara, No matter the age you feel like a kid in a candy store especially since we added the G Scale train to our ceiling in the shop. Come back soon and don't forget we ship all year long. Great web site too. More

There is a reason this place is the #1 restaurant in Dahlonega. We are from Indiana and my daughter and I were spending the day in Dahlonega while my husband was running a trail race.

Paul Thomas is a great place for chocolate lovers. The chocolate covered strawberries are amazing. Gotta love the miniature train that goes around tiny train tracks above the shop floor. Great place for gifts too.

Lori H, Owner at Paul Thomas Chocolates, responded to this review

Jaume, It's always a pleasure to see how our chocolate selection satisfies a customer from another part of the world. Chocolate blends differ from region to region as do a candy makers formulas for each creation. The G - Scale Train is a big hit for those young and old(er). Our 80 feet of track is such a wonderful surprise... More

Was looking forward to chocolate covered bacon but was very disappointed in the product. I tried several different products but while acceptable there were better shops in town.

Linda, Thank you for stopping by Paul Thomas Chocolates and giving us a try. Dahlonega is fortunate to have two candy makers right on the square. We'd love to know what you thought about the other choices you made. If you enjoy peanut butter maybe our Peanut Butter Delight might suit your taste buds. Another great piece is our Almond... More
