Tennessee Legend distillery

This distillery is a little out of the way.  It is about 8 miles on Dolly Parton Parkway from Sevierville.  Moonshine, Whiskey and after dinner drinks.  Try the cream based ones.  They have recipe cards that they give out for the different alcohol drinks.  2015/01/img_4109.jpg

The distillery has friendly staff and good moonshine.  Some say it is the best around.  Definitely worth the trip.

Moonshine Ridge

Moonshine Ridge is located on Wears Valley Road.  It is a rather large building with beautiful landscaping.  The cafe is to the left as you enter the porch area.  The cafe just opened back up again on August 23, 2016.

When you enter Moonshine Ridge, you will find the country store section to the right which includes many items to browse and explore such as home decor items, jewelry, t-shirts etc.  To the left of the entrance way is the grocery market section of Moonshine Ridge.  They have free smaples set out in front of the items that are for sale including a large selection of various salsas, dips, chips, relishes, pickles, jams, jellies, butters, BBQ sauces, and pickled vegetables. Look for items with the name brand of Tennessee’s Best, which is supposed to be a line of products made locally in the Great Smoky Mountains area.  In the center section of Moonshine Ridge to the left of the check out tables, you will see Aunt Tipsy’s fudge “shop” and more free samples if you ask.

Goats on the Roof

goatsonroofGoats on the Roof is a new addition to Pigeon Forge. It is a unique and different souvenir shop. There are goats on the roof that you can feed. You can buy food for the goats in the store and feed them by either peddling a stationery bike to get the feeding cup to the roof or cranking by hand.  You can not actually get onto the roof.  This is not a petting zoo.

Very cute souvenirs and friendly staff.  There is a gem mine too.  They also sell fudge, jam and ice cream…kids will love it!

Dillsboro Chocolate Factory

chocolatesVisitors can enjoy the complete line of Dillsboro Chocolate Factory’s award winning chocolates and smooth creamy fudge.  The Chocolate Factory makes some of the finest chocolate treats around using only gourmet single bean Venezuelan cocoa for all of its tasty treats. Specialties include Smoky Mountain Truffles and Shooters, along with a wide assortment of dipped and molded chocolates available in milk, dark and white chocolate.

The Smoky Mountain Truffles are all named for iconic places in the Smokies like Chimney Tops, Cades Cove, Cold Mountain and Black Rock. Each flavor of truffle has a unique recipe. Chimney Tops is a chai tea truffle flavored with nutmeg, cinnamon, black tea and cloves. This truffle earned first place in the 2009 Taste of Chocolate show in Waynesville, NC. There are over a dozen original Smoky Mountain Truffle flavors available.

DarkTurtleShooters are the newest line of fine chocolates created by the Dillsboro Chocolate Factory. Shooters take the award winning Ganache  (chocolate cream filling) recipe used in making the truffles and adds a touch of spirits to create interesting new flavors.  Fire Jack shooters are made with milk chocolate Ganache infused with cinnamon and Jack Daniels.  Apple Martini shooters are made with white chocolate Ganache infused with Apple Pucker and apple cider.

The Chocolate Factory’s Wild Turkey shooter earned first place honors in the Professional Division at the 2012 Taste of Chocolate held in Maggie Valley, NC. Wild Turkey shooters start with creamy milk chocolate Ganache infused with caramel, fine crushed pecans and of course real Wild Turkey 101. As a final touch, the Wild Turkey shooter is topped with the Dillsboro Chocolate Factory’s own butter toffee.

While the truffles and shooters are delicious, the heart of the Dillsboro Chocolate Factory is the handmade chocolates and fudge. There are dozens of flavors of handmade chocolate and fudge treats.

For more adventurous chocolate lovers there is a specialty line of savory chocolates each made with spices. These include hot spicy Aztec bars, Cajun chocolate and a unique ginger chocolate. Every now and then the Chocolate Factory offers Caribbean Jerk chocolate as well as whole peppercorn chocolate bars.

For fudge lovers there are more than a dozen flavors made each week in Dillsboro and brought over to Pigeon Forge as well as the Beef Jerky Outlet stores in the area. Summer fun flavors include watermelon and key lime pie which is made with real Key Lime juice from Key Largo, Florida with an original recipe graham cracker crust . Of course there is always good old plain chocolate fudge as well.
