Sweets have always been my weakness, especially chocolate. So when I noticed the Old Kentucky Chocolates store, I just had to go in and have some samples. I have to tell you, they were more than delicious. The only place where they make such fine chocolates is Switzerland, I believe.

They also have guided tours of their store giving some inside tips about these sweet delights, but you have to make an appointment in advance, so I missed that. I will definitely take part on a tour next time!

Address:
450 Southland Dr, Lexington, KY 40503, USA

Price:
Reasonable.
