“Excellent sweets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

We had been continuously tempted by the attractive window display of treats as we walked through Hill City and stopped in to enjoy ice cream and fudge. Felt service was good as many were young high school students and enjoyed talking with the owner/chocolate creator. Large variety of fudge and happy to purchase several types to enjoy on the long trip home. While it may have been slightly pricey, not surprised given the lack of competition in the area. Still felt it was worth it and glad to support local business owners.

“Overpriced and won't sell less than a half pound of fudge at a time.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

We have never been in a fudge shop that forced you to buy a half a pound of fudge without so much as a sample. They were sure to tell us we could buy 1 1/2 pounds and get a 1/2lb for free but wouldn't let us sample any of them. That was too much fudge at a $6 price for 1/2lb for us to risk it. We aren't made of that kind of money.

We bought a 1/2lb of the milk chocolate and vanilla mix. It was good but not worth writing home about. We got 3 different truffles as well at a $1.89 each. They had nice soft centers.

The teens running the counter were confused and not friendly. My husband did get a good Americano coffee which was way too hot for him to drink for like 20 min.

This place had a variety of items and will satisfy your sweet tooth at a hefty price and again, no sampling. We pass on another visit.

“Please work a little better on customer service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

The caramel apple was great thank you! $6.50? for a loaded apple.

We waited and waited...and waited... for the one employee to acknowledge us as we stood there for I don't know how long. Finally after he finished making espresso/coffee for some other customers he finally asked us what we'd like. Sadly, we got no "hi, hello, how are you, sorry for the wait". That was very rude. Also why is it that you cannot cut the apple for us? I'm sure you have knives all over the place when having to deal with fudge? That would be nice and "customer convenient" if you could cut the apple. I know that's probably a silly thing to you, but still, "customer convenience" is what we appreciate!

“Chocolate Heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Stopped in after having dinner at a restaurant nearby. We tried the truffles and haystacks - both amazing! Had such a craving for these the next night, that we drove the 15 miles from our cabin to load up on treats for our 8 hour drive home. If you have a sweet tooth, this is the place for you!
