Fresh and delicious treats. Had some ice cream with the family and they gave us many samples of fudge too. A must visit while walking the river front or enjoying the town.

This store is brimming with tempting chocolates and fudge. It's a delightful experience. The chocolate milkshakes are to die for.

This is a touristy priced place, but, it is an exceptional treat. The fudge is made on premises and fresh and delicious. Smells wonderful. Worth the visit.
