This stroller-friendly store in Old Town smells like heaven for chocolate lovers, with cocoa confections displayed in its glass cases. Popular items include toodles, chocolate-dipped fruit and solid chocolate molds that come in shapes ranging from cars to sports items. The confections are made in-store, so families can watch fudge being whipped up in copper pots or taffy apples being hand-dipped via a large picture window.
