While in St. Stephen take some time and do the Ganong Chocolate tour. It's very reasonable, very interesting and you get a lot of chocolate to sample. Check out the candy store after so that you can take home some of your favorites.

A few years back we were passing through this little border town, and I saw a chocolate museum. Also I noticed little flags on the lamp posts stating that this was Canada's chocolate town. So, arriving late I noted to myself if ever back through this area I would plan it on a day and time this attraction was open.... More

Who knew that the history of making hand making chocolates in a family run, small town business could be so interesting? Observe the hand dipping process while sampling unlimited Ganong's chocolates!

The people here were so warm and friendly and informative. The tour gave you insight into the company and the leadership. The family that began and continues to operate this business cares about their employees and their guests. I learned so much in such a short time. At each station they have samples to try and at the end you... More

Very interesting to hear the history of the company and learn about the making of chocolate. As you go through the museum there are unlimited samples of the product. I nearly OD'd on chocolate as there are no limitations. I would highly recommend.

Took the 7 and 11 year old grandsons here since we all like chocolate. They were not interested in many of the displays but definitely enjoyed sampling all the chocolates available throughout the museum. Although the museum had hands-on exhibits, the boys didn't show much interest in them except for the packing game. For an adult who is interested in... More

On a rainy day in early September, we visited the Ganong Chocolate Museum. We learned the interesting history of the Ganong family and of chocolate making. Lots of delicious samples throughout the tour. We visited the shop afterwards to buy chicken bones and peanut butter cups.

This is an information packed venue with all the free chocolate you can eat while watching skilled workers hand dip chocolates. It's a must see in St. Stephens
