If you like handmade chocolates then check out Jan´s. I have never been a fan of dark chocolate until I tried Jan´s dark chocolate with sea salt. Loved it! Her candies are excellent.

My cousin and I purchased a cashew bear claw, which was 1/2 lb of pure deliciousness! If you have never had a bear claw you... More

This is so good that I try to get past it without stopping. All the candy is made on site, and the Peppermint bark and caramels are magnificent. (personal favorites) Everything is great.

My goodness I cannot say enough about the chocolate in this shop. The truffles are to die for, the chocolate melts in your mouth. I was so impressed I brought my boxes home and put them in my grandchildrens candy shop cabinet for years to come. Everyone ask when they see the boxes. This is a must visit in Lauderdale... More

After having a wonderful dinner with friends at a local restaurant, we left not wanting the night to end! Since I was driving, I thought we'd stop for ice cream to extend the evening. Suddenly, I remembered Jan's and made a quick turn into the parking lot and Vola! Jan was standing in the doorway ready to close after seeing... More
