Some of the best chocolate we've had anywhere. Very helpful staff, lots of free samples. Tried the specialty cashew and pecan glazes, both amazing, plus the sponge candy, which was incredible and better even than advertised. We are big fans now, even cocoanut crisp and white chocolate gingerbread candies really great. We will be ordering more online!

Always a great selection! Chocolate, cashew glaze and mint wafers dipped in chocolate are some of my favorites.

Oliver's has been a Batavia landmark for as long as I can remember. I love bringing out of town guests to Oliver's so they can purchase something unique for their friends and families at home. I often buy the hostess mints and sponge candy to take as gifts when I travel abroad since these are unique to WNY.

Olivers has so much to choose from it's hard to just go in for one item. This was the first time my husband and I had ever been in Olivers, we drive by it almost daily. The candy was reasonably priced so of course we got a variety and then we ordered ice cream sundae's! The ice cream was soooooooo... More

I could not believe a store could ever have so much chocolate & candy. The staff were great and very helpful. If you are looking for something special this is the store to go to as it had a huge assortment of stuff, including gifts.

Find chocolate and candies made by a great company. When in Batavia this is a must stop the only problem is there's so many things to buy and a homemade ice cream is outstanding.
