Located in downtown Raleigh, Videri Chocolate Factory is an artisan chocolatier that makes amazing in-house chocolates.

I love their walk-up window where you can order soft-serve ice cream with your choice of toppings. 

I opted for vanilla ice cream drizzled with hot fudge and topped with their amazing peppermint bar crumbled on top.

Also, try their Affogato – an amazing dessert made with espresso and ice cream.

  1. Wow! So many places to get chocolate in Raleigh! I enjoy an occasional piece of dark chocolate. It’s not only yummy it’s good for me.

  2. What an incredible collection of chocolate shops! I noticed that my favourite, GooGoos, was included in the list! I wish we could get those here in Toronto! Guess I have a good list of places to hit up when I return to the Carolinas!

  3. I would definitely have to try all of those chocolates if I came to visit Raleigh, NC. I’m slightly addicted to chocolate. However, the only one I don’t love is Lindt. Can’t tell you why😂

    1. Chocolate makes the world a better place! Lindt is definitely one of my favorites. Truffles have always had my heart. 🙂
