Chocolate Factory Tour

   As many of you know, I recently went on a trip to visit my daughter and to be there for the birth of my 3rd grand child.  While there, I had the pleasure of visiting the "Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory" in Stillwater, OK.  When I say "pleasure", boy howdy, do I mean it.  Not only is the place a feast for the mouth but also for the eyes.  It is AMAZING!!!!

      The store is owned by Janna Boyer and is family operated, in fact, Janna's daughter is the manager.  All of the employees are so friendly that you just feel at home while browsing all the goodies available.    You will find the mascot bear and the employees wearing the red "Fudge for Troops" t-shirts and they are doing so for a great cause.  For every pound of fudge you buy during July and August, Janna will donate and send one pound of fudge overseas to our troops.  She has been doing this for the last four years and so far, has sent over 750 lbs. of fudge to Afghanistan, Kuwait, etc.  I know that chocolate is usually discouraged to be sent because of the heat but the workers at the Chocolate Factory make their own inverted sugar from scratch at the store and it keeps the fudge from melting.  How great is that?!  They even make their own caramel right there in the store too.  By the way, the store carries 8 different varieties of fudge all the time but during the holidays, they have even more flavors than that.

    The store carries over 25 different flavors of caramel apples at a time.  Some of the flavors include:  English Toffee, Apple Pie Apple,  Pecan Apple Pie; Triple Chocolate, Worms & Dirt apple, and Pecan Bear Apple (which is a caramel pecan apple wrapped in chocolate). The apples are reasonably priced from $4.50-$7.50 each.  I got the Triple Chocolate apple and it was DIVINE!

        While we were enjoying our apples and chocolate covered strawberries, we sipped on delicious iced tea and their famous Root Beer Floats.  It was quite a day and one we won't soon forget.

      If you are ever within driving distance (even 4 hours away), it would be worth your time to drop by The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory in Stillwater, OK (714 S. Main) and try out some of the wonderful treats.  Or if it is too far, call the store (405-533- 2977 or 405-385-9655) and place and order and Janna will mail it right out to you!

   Store hours are Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m.- 9 p.m. and Sundays 1 p.m. - 9 p.m.

  4. How fun to see my town mentioned on your blog. My daughter is a big fan of the fancy apples at Rocky Mountain and her little sister in law went to a chocolate day camp during summer break there.

    1. Rhonda, so glad you dropped by. The place is FANTASTIC! I can see why your daughter is a fan. I seen that she was doing the day camp and wished we lived closer so I could have let my older son attend. It looked like it would have been fun. Hope you'll drop by my blog again soon!
