The smell gets you first.

Then duck your head as you go through the door.

Prepare to be amazed. It is not cheap but everything I tasted and bought was exceptional.

Go here now.

The smell that greets you when you enter the shop is gorgeous!
Bought loads of different flavours, very hard to make your mind up, so much choice!
Chocolates looked lovely too!
Well worth a visit and can be boxed to make great presents!

Some of the best fudge you will ever have for low prices! Unfortunately, when we went they were missing the favourite clotted cream fudge!

The Window Display is a little tired looking but don't let that put you off.

We visited this shop twice during our 10 day stay in North Yorkshire. Both times we received a friendly and helpful service. The staff encourage you to try the different chocolates and fudges before buying.

Be careful as some items weigh rather heavy but we found the prices generally quite reasonable for such fine chocolate and fudge.

Our favorites are the Real Rum & Raisin Fudge (not essence) and the Chilli Chocolate. The Chilli Chocolate has quite a kick so not for the faint hearted.

Back story - Justin is the name of the founding proprietor of the business. On chatting to the staff on one of our visits we were saddened to find out that Justin had died alone at home (after working all day) of pneumonia a couple of years ago. He worked hard and devoted his life to chocolate making. His extended family members are carrying on the business in his honour. There is a lovely photograph of Justin behind the counter.

Well worth a visit.
