On our way home from Canada & decided top make a quick stop. Tour guide gave a nice little history of the store. Didn't know much about the history of chocolate before so now I know a little more. There was a brief video. It was a good stop & ended up buying a lot of 🍫. Enjoy.

We visited on a Saturday when there was no production happening. We were able to see where the chocolate is made and had a tasting. trying to identify the types of chocolate was fun and educational. Probably not enough to entertain small kids, but we were two adults. Worth the stop as we were passing by anyway.

This store has the best peppermint hot chocolate. I sure hope the one they make fresh in the store is the same as the container I bought!

Good chocolate, but a little expensive for my taste. Nice view of the factory itself. No tour this week, though.

Lake Champlain has a great assortment of chocolates. I stopped in to pick up some place setting pieces for thanksgiving. I was pleased that they had both milk as well as dark chocolate turkey pieces. I have also stopped in during the summer months for ice cream. There has never been a wait for ice cream as there typically is... More

Basically an overpriced candy store, but what do you expect? It's a niche shop in a college, tourist and ski town. The chocolate and other delectables are, in fact, delicious. You can watch some of the chocolates being made. There are many items to choose from. You will pay out the nose for what is essentially a fancily wrapped Hershey... More

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!
