I was in the shop 1/26/27 to unfortunately find out our friend of many years (owner Beatrix) had retired. Beatrix made the BEST chocolate and was always happy to see and temp us with her newest flavor. Beatrix was a very proud woman and many times I'd see her running through town to get chocolates to the cruise ship passengers... More

This is a have-to stop when ever we are in Phillipsburg. They have some of the best chocolate you will find. Not the American super-sweet stuff, but real quality gourmet chocolates. People who expect "American" values everywhere they go might want to leave the kiddies outside as there are a couple of rather explicit chocolate molds on the higher shelf.... More

You won't find any chocolate that is any finer in this hemisphere. Beatrix has a special talent and super secret recipes that make this shop very special!

We stopped in to investigate, because - well, chocolate. The store has good reviews and smelled amazing, but we didn't purchase any due to the pricing. It is higher end pricing and since we were only looking for a quick bite of something sweet, we decided not to purchase. Of note, on the shelves near the register there are genital-shaped... More

If you love fine chocolate you must visit the Belgian Chocolate Box. I visit the location every time I am on the island. I will be back in Feb 2017 and I will be going back for more chocolates.

If you like good chocolates and tasty treats you must stop in! I only wish they shipped to the states.

My wife found this place through a guide booklet. She convinced me to track it down while we were there. I'm glad she did. We bought various pieces of chocolate including the chocolate covered bacon and the waffle pieces covered in chocolate. She had reasonable prices and sample packages available. Everything we bought was yummy delicious. Had we tasted it... More

We visited on a scorcher of a day which we saved for the last stop before heading back to the hotel. Little did we know, if you get enough pieces, you get a small cooler bag to help keep your chocolate. We didn't hesitate to reach that minimum. Flavor selections were good and catered to the island flavors.

I'm a dark chocolate lover, and the Belgian Chocolate Box has many wonderful options...guavaberry, citrus, raspberry, strawberry filled, to name a few. I brought home several lbs., and the owner was kind enough to give me an insulated cooler for my purchase. My chocolate (or what was left of it) made it back home to Buffalo in perfect condition. Oh,... More
