If we told you there was an entire holiday dedicated to indulging in your favorite guilty pleasure, would you believe us? Well, believe it or not, National Chocolate Day does exist, and it may even be the crowning glory of all unique holidays.
This year, National Chocolate Day—happening on October 28 every year—has already passed. But that doesn’t mean we can’t still celebrate! There’s a reason for the season, and the reason for us is chocolate.
Whether you need a break from the stress of holiday shopping and planning and want to treat yourself to a small indulgence, or you need to find the best party favors to leave the guests of your upcoming holiday party, chocolate is always a crowd pleaser. Be sure to check out one of these chocolate shops near Cherry Hill this season—you won’t be sorry you did!

Bayard’s Chocolate House
If you’re looking for traditionally made chocolate of the good old days, Bayard’s Chocolate House is the place for you. Their recipe for chocolate hasn’t changed since 1939. The packaging for the chocolates has been around almost as long. Once you hand-pick the chocolates you want, you’ll take them home in a beautiful chocolate “house” for your guests or gift recipient to admire. There’s much to be said about packaging, and the uniqueness that comes with this family-run chocolate business is truly one to marvel at. Be sure to stop by the location off Route 70 if you’re looking for a festive family atmosphere this holiday season.
Aunt Charlotte’s Candies
Yet another of the many family-run chocolate shops near Cherry Hill, Aunt Charlotte’s Candies has been pleasing customers from near and far since 1920. The personalized service delivered by the 3rd and 4th generation family members is unmatched; stop in, and you’ll feel like a member of the family. You can even visit the factory on the second floor and admire where the chocolates get made. “Delight in every bite” is their slogan, and we’re sure that’s what you’ll find!
At Cherry Hill Nissan, we want to encourage you to shop small this holiday season. While many national chain stores offer good promotions that are hard to argue with, supporting local businesses, like these chocolate shops near Cherry Hill, helps put money back into your local community—something to think about the next time you’re on Amazon! We wish you a safe and happy holiday season here in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
