I’m not a chocoholic - but my wife appreciates fine chocolate - and she claims that this place is the finest in the land - well worth the drive as a destination spot......

Years ago when I was in Teachers' College, I used to walk to Thompson Candies to get a treat to take home to my dad. A generation later, Rheo Thompson offers that same high-quality mouth-watering chocolate. Just entering the building is an aromatic treat.

A magical place filled with delicious chocolate. It smells incredible in here. The staff is friendly and efficient. The mint smoothies, coconut clusters, and almond crisps are the best! We had mint smoothies as our wedding favours and let’s say our guests were not disappointed.
