We stopped by before our boat ride on the Spirit of Ethan Allen 3. It is not to far away from the harbor. You can watch them make chocolate through the glass on the hour. It is free to watch them. They usually have some small samples out for you to taste and hopefully convince you to buy. The chocolate... More

This was my second visit to this delightful place. So many different choices to try. The fudge is the best in the world, the truffles are heavenly, the sea salt caramels are SINFUL. I would rate the quality a 20 PLUS PLUS. The service was not overly ambitious, but not as friendly as the other places I visited while in... More

I bought my sweetie a box of chocolates for Valentine's Day. The box they came in was absolutely beautiful and she loved it. It was expensive but well worth it.

This was the store located near Stowe. It was very big with a lot of options. I liked the "seconds." Cheaper good quality chocolate is always good. I appreciated the Hanukkah items as well as Christmas. And I really appreciated the free gift for spending over 40.00 which was quite easy to do. I got a nice sized bag of... More

When you walk in, the smells hit you first. There are many varieties of jelly beans, fudge and chocolate. There are some samples out. Cute gift packs.

The chocolates and ice cream are about the best I have ever eaten. I am a chocolate lover and have eaten many varieties in my 55 years and these are the best. The chocolate is rich, creamy and flavorful.

I was definitely disappointed in the tour.I was definitely disappointed in the tour. We went in, wandered around and ended up on the 'touring deck' checking things out. Then we went to ask about the tour, and they explained that it takes place on the upper level where the windows are. It really should just be advertised as a viewing... More

If you're looking for some TASTY chocolate, this is the place to go. I loved the chocolate that I bought. I'm not sure what kind it was, unfortunately, because the packaging was wrong. I purchased a dark chocolate with hazelnuts but it was really something else - BUT DELICIOUS! I have a few other bars to eat yet, we'll see... More
