Iowa has no shortage of great chocolate shops, but most of them don’t want you to linger and savor. They’re traditional candy shops that box up your goods and leave you to enjoy them at home. But at Kalona Chocolates, the small Amish-run chocolate shop has developed a reputation for hospitality. Featuring a wide selection of traditional and unique candies and chocolates, along with a hot chocolate bar that brings a new meaning to the word “indulgence,” it’s transformed from a simple chocolate shop to an Iowa institution.

The chocolate shop is adding new seasonal options all the time, so make sure to drop by their website and Facebook page before your next chocolate fix!
