"The Chocolate Spike" is owned and operated by Genie Ranck since December 2003. With a background in both art and chemistry, she has always delighted in exciting and unusual creations. Her journey into the world of chocolate started over 8 years ago when she began selling homemade foods at the Farmer's Market in Downtown Blacksburg.

Genie's artistic endeavors have taken many forms, including a large metal sculpture on her front steps. The family dubbed him "Spike." Friends and visitors have found him an interesting and steady fellow and would often greet him before knocking on Genie's door. Over the years, legend has given him a life of his own – now he has a store of his own, "The Chocolate Spike."
