Wow, am I really the last to know? The largest hand-made chocolate factory in the United States is in my own backyard in Mt. Pleasant and somehow I missed it? I'm so embarrassed. The family owned business, Sweet Shop USA , dedicate themselves to preserving the craft of making hand-made chocolates. These guys have  even received national recognition for creating over 100 varieties of handmade pieces including various Truffles, Famous Brags®, Nuts and Chewies, and their signature Fudge Love®.

Who wouldn't fall in love with these chocolates that are lovingly made by hand,  one piece at a time. We are talking chocolate artists here people! Who's up for a tasting tour? No, really!
