Sooooo good! The chocolate covered Oreos were the best I’ve ever had. The chocolate at Anderson’s is other-worldly.

They have a ton of homemade treats and candies year round, it is a 3rd or 4th generation candy shop that does chocolates very well

This a truly a "golden ticket" chocolate experience. All of their candies are wonderful. This trip we added peanut butter crunch and molasses chips to the mix. A golden day!!!

We've been enjoying Anderson's Homemade Candies for going on 40 years. I don't care what chocolate confection you like (milk, dark, solid, filled, etc.) you will never find any better.

Andersen's has decadent chocolate. I have visited a lot of mom and pop chocolate stores, but this one by far is the best! They have "candy bars" in both light and dark chocolate.

If your looking for a small candy shop this is it. Located on Main Street in Richmond you can stop in while exploring the various antique shops scattered about.

Stopped with my granddaughter, she's 11. We both loved it. She got chocolate covered marshmallow eggs, I got a couple of dark chocolate bars and bought grandma some fudge. Absolutely delicious. Loved the store and the great variety offered. The staff was a delight.
