Indulge at Baltimore's Best Chocolate Shops

Would you like to enjoy a sweet treat?

If so, visit one of the chocolate shops around our apartments near Johns Hopkins where you'll find everything from peanut butter cups to melt-in-your-mouth fudge:

Wockenfuss Candies 

Wockenfuss has been a local favorite for over a century. It's one of the oldest candy makers in Baltimore and is run by the Wockenfuss' family's fifth generation. Founder Herman Wockenfuss came to the United States from Germany in 1885. He later learned to make chocolate and opened the shop in 1915. The candy is made from the finest ingredients, and the chocolatiers carry on his tradition of quality and value. Treats include almond bark, dark rum truffles, and jumbo peanut butter cups.  

Charm City Chocolate Shop

When Todd and Michelle decided to share their love of chocolate, Charm City was born. They learned their skills at a family-owned chocolate shop in South Carolina. Once home in Baltimore, they perfected their techniques and developed one-of-a-kind recipes. Charm City offers a fun setting, and the Baltimore City Paper states that it's reminiscent of the corner candy store in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The varied selection includes turtles, chocolate covered pretzels, and spicy chocolate chile bark. 

Pure Chocolate by Jinji 

Owned by a father and daughter duo, Pure Chocolate by Jinji offers memorable flavor profiles. Jinji boasts that she's a storyteller who uses raw cacao as her medium. She makes the pieces by hand, and they're free of dairy, gluten, and refined sugars. Her creations are called the "Best in Baltimore," and the selection changes with the seasons. Flavors include Rosemary Honey, Smokin' Hot, and Pucker at Midnight. 

These are just a few of the candy stores near The Academy on Charles. If you are searching for a place to call home, please contact us. We would love to arrange a tour so you can see firsthand all we have to offer.
