Mercer Island is home to two sweet shops. The classic Oh Chocolate! is a long-time local shop that has perfected artisan chocolates through three generations of family ownership. The recently opened and brightly colored Island Treats shop sells both highly addictive hand-crafted chocolate confections (be sure to try the Pretzel Thingies!), bulk candy, and party supplies. Both shops are worth a stop and have wonderful gift selections.

Oh! Chocolate is a must-stop for chocolate lovers and has been delighting customers since 1985. This family-owned shop – spanning three generations! – offers a variety of chocolate-covered caramels and truffles – hand-crafted and perfected throughout the years. They sell elegant gift boxes in a variety of sizes – from two-piece favor boxes to their grand assortment, a 36-piece two-tiered chocolate box set. This shop also teaches the fine art of chocolate making with both kids and adult classes.
