“Best Chocolate Almost Anywhere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Whenever I want to get a special gift for someone, but don't know their personal taste well enough to buy them a gift, I head to Turtle Alley. The chocolates are hand-crafted goodness. The owner's passion for her products come from first making chocolate with her grandmother, only she's grown up into a first-class chocolatier. Don't limit yourself to the Turtles - there are many specialties that are worth a bite or two, okay maybe four or five bites.....no, no, definitely more bites!

“Yummy!!!”

Best chocolate. Made fresh and delicious. My eight- year- olds favorite place to celebrate!!! He loves the chocolate covered marshmallows. I just bought some peppermint bark for a gift.

“delicious treats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

A large box of these assorted treats was given to us by lovely friends visiting from USA. My past experience of chocolate from the other side of the pond has been less than positive, and normally it is us taking choccie goods over there for family and friends. Well these candies have changed my mind and will definitely get more of these, I love the rustic home made look of them and the flavours are delicious, we didn't get anything with them to tell us what each one was which made the tasting of them quite an adventure....but no complaints whatsoever, if you like chocolate you will like these !!
