Why is Angels Camp so sweet?

Posted : January 27, 2012

The Chocolate Lady has come to town.

There are a few new reasons to stop in downtown Angels Camp these days, but the tastiest may be the White Chocolate-Covered Popcorn that you can find at The Chocolate Lady Shop. Open daily from 10-6, The Chocolate Lady also features unique treats like Chocolate Covered Cinnamon Gummy Bears and her version of the Almond Joy, Happy Happy Joy Joy. All goodies are hand-made by Edna Patitucci who has been making chocolate in the foothills for 7 years.

So, if you’re making your way down Historic Hwy. 49 and need an excuse for stopping, this would be a good one. Who can resist a good piece of chocolate?

Keep an eye out for special wine tasting and chocolate pairings The Chocolate Lady plans on hosting in the future. Then you might actually have to stay the night.

Here are a few other things you’ll want to do when you get to Angels Camp:

  • Pick up a copy of the Visitors Guide at the Calaveras Visitors Center, also located in downtown Angels Camp. (You might end up staying a week!)
  • Take a tour of the Frog Hop of Fame.
