There's not much else to say about it. The Village Peddler is combined with the Chocolotorium. Lots of chocolate available - fudge, candy, etc. also so souvenir items.

We always come here for good chocolate candy/fudge and to stock up on jarred items like specialty mustards, jams, and other home made goodies. Prices are better than elsewhere and this small place has an amazing selection of goods.
