It's midnight, you're half-drunk, and your similarly half-drunk friends have decided they absolutely must have some dark chocolate with wasabi right now. For such half-drunk people, there's To the Moon. Its exhaustive array of gourmet chocolate bars, oddities (the original Dentyne! Skybars! Valo Milk!), novelties (chocolate penises!), and a bunch of unclassifiables (rosemary chocolates?) bulge from the small shop's densely packed shelves. Even a cursory examination of the shop reveals a few things too weird to be believed (Venezuelan white chocolate with Kalamata olives?), but most important, you can buy them up until closing time at 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday and the only slightly less impressive 11 p.m. the rest of the week. Even at those late hours, proprietor Antonio Dumas will rattle off a story about each of the 60 varieties of licorice on his shelves. He's obviously an insomniac (or a vampire), but that's a godsend for late-night sweet tooths.

TO THE MOON is one of the best shops to carry retro, nostalgic, hard to find kind of items. From candy to incense all items are terrific. Words could never describe the adventure throught this 'unforgetable' shop. Antonio, the owner, is very knowledgable about each and every item and a pleasure to meet. Hope you enjoy your trip as much as my repeated trips! Best of luck from ATLANTA, GA.

Ahhhh, what a fun store! Amazing quality candies, gifts and products. The owner is always friendly and willing to help you find the exact item you are looking for. Wish there were some of his stores out here in California!

LOVE to the Moon! What a great store! Spend my winters in Wilton Manors, and enjoy visiting this cool store for gifts, cards and candy. Its a great store to bring visitors visiting from out of town! Wish there was a store like that in Ogunquit!

Having been a recent Wilton Manors resident, not only is To the Moon a one-of-a-kind store, but its proprietor, Antonio, rates at the top of the charts as both an inspired shop owner and valued friend.
