Since 1984 we have been inventing and making handmade specialty chocolates and very comforting desserts made right here on site in our factory, fresh everyday in The Gulch. And now we have opened a sweet little retail store where you can buy everything we make. We are the oldest specialty chocolate factory in Nashville! 30 years...but who's counting. At Colts Chocolates, we are committed to using only the finest, freshest ingredients. We hand-roast our almonds and pecans and make everything in small batches to ensure that homemade taste you deserve. Since 1984, we have brought you unique and innovative confections that are unlike any others. Every single product has its very own distinctive look and taste. Making gourmet chocolates and desserts (yes, we have an extensive line of ooey gooey desserts - including our famous Salted Caramel Gooey Butter Bar!) was the dream of Mackenzie Colt, country music singer and songwriter and a former featured actress on TV's long-running show HEE HAW. In 1984 she founded Colts Chocolates and never looked back. From the stage to stove...Mackenzie has created and developed each and every product. Great chocolate doesn't just make itself!

Stopped in Colts Chocolates and really liked the all of the candy. The Colts Bolts are their signature candy and are addicting. Highly recommend stopping.

I have a nut allergy so I was only able to try one thing, the butter-graham, and omg.. it was divine! I wish I would've bought more! They also had chocolate covered marshmallows and animal crackers for the no nuts people, but don't waste your...More

Great gift baskets, lots of samples that ensured we'd buy, and reasonably priced gourmet chocolates. Loved the chocolate peanut butter truffles (? babies) and the Colt's Bolts. Very nice cashier too. Nice bathrooms, if that matters to anyone. ha

We were looking for coffee and found some excellent chocolate instead. When we entered they immediately offered samples and a "tour" of the highlighted goodies. The butter cookie was out of this world - shortbread crust with a caramel top - we even met the...More

This candy shop in the Gulch is a gem. They have samples out of their most popular candies so you can try before you buy. These are candies made right there in the back of the store. Don't miss it!

Delicious samples. Bought some lovely chocolates and biscuits. Thought we would see the chocolates being made in the factory but there does not appear to be public access.
