You'd be hard-pressed to find a theme that The Chocolate Vault can't fulfill with its more than 12,000 molds. If you're looking for more than molded chocolate, you can relive your youth by popping a Sen-Sen or Horehound hard candy from the Vault's old-fashioned candy shop.Characters and animals from block-buster movies have been particularly popular for this Tecumseh company. Once you get your chocolate fill, sink your teeth into a waffle cone oozing with ice cream or sip a Boston Cooler at the ice cream parlor. In past years, favorites included the Security Split, the Mint and the Treasurer's Transaction, ice cream treats that give tribute to the fact that the dessert haven is set in the vault of a restored 1849 bank building.
