Who we are?
Isn't It Sweet, handmade chocolates & confections began in Albany, New York in 1994 as a home based business.

Evolved from a hobby for making unique and delicious chocolate creations, our first retail outlets were local and regional craft shows and festivals.

In April 2001, our first permanent retail store opened at 575 New Scotland Avene in Albany.

After 20 years in business our handmade chocolates are still created daily by the original two partners (with just little help!)

In addition to our retail store, we participate in over 30 craft shows, festivals and private sales each year, bringing our delectable creations direct to you.

Welcome and Enjoy!
