We stopped into Lake Champlain Chocolates at the end of our trip on the way out of Burlington and were hoping to catch a tour of the factory, but we had missed the tour. We still enjoyed looking at the setup through the glass windows and enjoyed sampling some of the delicious chocolates in the store.

Fun trip for the family even with college age children! Definitely the high light of the Burlington VT visit. We enjoyed the free tour, the sample and the chocolate drinks at the small cafe inside the shop. The staff were friendly and helpful in helping us to pick the best gifts for family and friends.

Low-key, informative tour of the factory with samples, and a nice store attached. Good way to learn more how food is prepared, sourced.

The flagship store of Lake Champlain Chocolates and the place where you can get a tour of how the chocolates are made. However if you have a nut allergy you cannot come to this store/factory for a visit. Boo. Some of the best chocolate around by far and samples too!!

If you are a chocolate lover, this is the place for you! Upon entering this establishment, your mouth will water with the rich chocolate scents surrounding you. The large variety of chocolates makes it hard to decide what to indulge in. There are samples to help you make a choice, & some chocolates were even on sale. Continue to the... More

The free tour of Lake Champlain Chocolate Factory is a must-do when visiting Burlington. Tours run every hour and are about 45 minutes long. Plan to get there a couple minutes before the tour starts so you can get a spot as they are first come, first serve. You should plan about an hour and a half total for your... More

This is called a factory tour, you do not actually get to go round the factory but see what is going on from a platform, but it is still well worth the visit. It is a free tour. The girl who took the tour /talk explained very well how chocolate was made and you got to taste different varieties of... More

My kids loved the salted caramel and peanut butter bars that I took home. Then we happened to see them on Unwrapped!! I love the Guatemalan hot chocolate!

We stopped in to check out the store while on vacation - and have been loyal mailorder customers ever since. We have tried other chocolates, but none compare to Lake Champlain. All of our orders have been perfect. Can't wait to place another one!!
