The award for outstanding achievement in the field of excellence!

This place would have to be a contender!

Chocolate heaven!
The chocolate they make is the stuff of dreams to the serious choccy aficionado. The aromas when walking into the shop hit the senses and bowl them for six- essential oils and the highest quality chocolate.
It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for. The handmade chocolates sell for about $16 per 100g- a box of about 16 costs around $25 and the bigg box costs $55- butwhen you think about it-where can you get a special present for that price?
And they do impress the ladies ;-)
