This little store is awesome. The selection of jams, jellies, truffles and caramels is just the beginning. Their sauces, dips and soup mixes are in a class by themselves. Don't get me started on the variety of original Vinaigrettes that will take your cooking to a whole other level!
Fresh Artisan Breads, Free Range eggs, and meats. The staff know their products and can whip up the perfect gift basket for any occasion. Do yourself a favor and stop by they even give you a caramel to try while you shop.
By the way if you get hooked on their unique products they ship!

Jenelle was amazing, fantastic, knowledgeable and personable! She did an excellent job teaching the history of chocolate aka bitter water! She shared some wonderful information and then shared her wonderful chocolate with the class. Everyone got to personally dip assorted items in her special chocolate pot. YUMMY!!!
Then we visited her store, let's just say everything was sinfully delicious 😋
The store manager even joined us tasting one of the the "poops"
Sending this review lots of Love 💕

The instructor, also the owner of the store, was excellent! She told us the history of chocolate and was very patient with us as we made our chocolates. We each came away with a box full of a variety of delicious chocolates.

Camping at Pagosa Springs RV park and drove into town for sightseeing & shopping. A shop owner recommended a visit to The Choke Cherry Tree. It is on the opposite side of historic downtown Pagosa in a mall with City Market. Candy made on site plus tons of delicacies & special items like Choke Cherry preserves. Candy samples available. Sea salt caramel the best I have ever had. Went back the next day for more. Also got a sampler pack with toffee & other candies which were scrumptious.
Highly recommended for candy lovers!

If you’re a caramel fan, this is the place for you. Besides their handmade treats, there is plenty of gourmet goodies for tempting ones tastebuds. Look into the local magazines or flyers for a caramel coupon! While not a caramel lover, I did find enjoy the chocolates.

We went in here because of the homemade cherry jam but was pleasantly surprised to see all kinds of goodies! Olive oils, balsamic vinegars, dipping sauces and much more! The guy working there really knew his stuff and let us taste some oils. It’s a really fun store. A must do while in P.S.
