Asheville NC: The Chocolate Fetish

Asheville has an amazing number of chocolate shops. The Chocolate Fetish is probably one of the oldest and best known. It's right in the middle of downtown. The store has a half-dozen cases with chocolates of every variety. A few tables are available to enjoy your treat on the spot, although most people seem to carry theirs home.

I sampled several types: an almond rocher, candied ginger, and salted caramel. The candied ginger was wonderful with a great zing. I ordered the salted chocolate with a dark chocolate coating, which had quite a bit of cacao in it. The creaminess of the caramel contrasted perfectly with the salt, although perhaps a little less salt would have been ideal. The almond rocher had a firm texture and plenty of almonds.
