Cary, N. We take orders if someone comes into the parking lot. We take orders. The shop has a rich history dating back to when it opened its doors on West Chatham Street.
Generations of people have been making it their go-to spot for sweet treats. Williams, who is the fourth person to own the shop, said people have come from Wilson and Fayetteville to check out their confections. They have also shipped chocolate internationally.
The shop is known for its large confection cases, filled with items including their famous truffles. In addition to truffles and fudge, the shop has added hot cocoa bombs to the menu. These "bombs" are made from their premium chocolate and filled with hot cocoa mix.
This little community bakery is the place where anyone is welcome, we're on a first name basis with most of our customers, and everything is made right here.
Just pour hot milk over the bomb and watch it explode in your cup. We have our milk chocolate, a dark chocolate raspberry, chocolate covered strawberry and a red velvet cake and that one is shaped in a heart shape," Williams said. In addition to fruit, the shop dips marshmallows, graham crackers and just about everything else in chocolate.
Even the boxes the chocolates go in can be made of chocolate. Chocolate Smiles is also known for its reusable boxes, which loyal customers bring back each year to be filled with chocolates. One customer has been bringing his box back for about 30 years. Published: Updated: Tags: chocolateValentine's Dayfoodie.
