We were here on 30.10.15 - I enjoyed the talk but couldn't hear it all for the customers in the shop - presenter needs a microphone or need to section the talk area off. Bearing in mind this was the day before Halloween - the shop itself had no Halloween products in!! Also, we could see that Xmas chocs were... More

These folks know their chocolate and you will learn a lot by taking the tour. It is very interesting to learn where chocolate comes from and how it is processed. They provide many samples and will open a package if there is something you want to try that is not out. Afterward you have the chance to buy some chocolate... More

The staff are warm, and helpful, there when you need/want them, and served up a delectable cup of hot chocolate, that I won't soon forget. Let's hope that when I try to make their's at home, I do as good of a job!

Located in the south end of Burlington, we sampled different types of chocolate (similar to that of a wine tasting). Yummy samples offered throughout the store. Prices were not much lower than full retail, but it was fun viewing the factory and being surrounded by delicious chocolate!

Terrific chocolate and most of all, people who know how to give customer service. Professional, well groomed staff who know about their product and what they do. It's not excitement like other attractions, but it is good to see a fine product being made. Warm atmosphere and a dedication to quality.

Oh boy. The chocolate is not bad at all. I really liked the dark chocolate almond bark, but at $39 a pound I could fly to Brussels buy chocolate and still be happy. Maybe happier. Not much to see. So, bottom line is the chocolate is good but the price is just plain silly. And I LOVE chocolate.

This is a very small, intimate chocolate factory. The tour is a video along with a very knowledgeable staff member explaining how chocolate is made. The chocolate is fantastic.

You walk in...and...there is chocolate everywhere. Samples to taste, a window to watch them make the chocolate, seconds to buy. Seeing a demonstration about how they make chocolate become REAL chocolate...learning about where chocolate comes from, and what has to be done before it comes here, to make it become chocolate. All are fascinating. And then...you get to buy one,... More

This is probably the best chocolate I have ever eaten! We went on a weekend- so they weren't doing tours, but they did have tastings. For the most part- I was disappointed with the few morsels of chocolate they had for their tastings. It was mainly to educate you to the different varieties of chocolate. I would have preferred more... More
