My girlfriend and I were spending a romantic weekday trip in Vermont and were introduced to the Lake Champlain Chocolate company while at the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory. We bought a rather expensive $4 candy bar that was fabulous! So while driving near Burlington we decided to stop by to see the tour. Unfortunately, the last tour was at 10... More

Unfortunately, we missed the beginning of the factory "tour," but what we did hear and see was very interesting. The factory of Lake Champlain Chocolates is not very large, but they produce a wide variety of delicious chocolate! All the workers were well versed and were able to answer any questions. Samples were given out at the end, and in... More

I took the tour (well actually you just sit in a chair while they talk) and you can look through a window out over where they make the chocolates. We got samples after the tour. I bought several varieties of chocolate to bring home for family and friends. I highly recommend stopping by and seeing the factory (even if you... More

Never been for the tour, but have been there for the chocolate. If you get "factory seconds" you can save some money and they appear to be the same as the regular only cheaper. There is so much to choose from, I have trouble deciding what I want. Anything with caramel is always a good choice. They also have a... More

We came for the free tour and to buy some chocolates. It was great to see the manufacturing taking place and learn about the chocolate making process. The samples were generous and sold me on some things I never would have tried. We ended up buying many items, because tasting is believing; this really is the best chocolate in the... More

Free tours here between 10am and 2pm with free samples too ! We had a short presentation and film about the chocolate company and saw the factory and various stages in the chocolate making . The shop has a good supply of chocolates including some cheaper seconds. I'm afraid we resisted the temptation ! If you're a chocolate lover, this... More

Lake Champlain Chocolates is a chocolate lover's paradise. Picture a bakery with chocolates instead to baked goods. There is a nice variety of flavors, and the staff is very friendly. It's located in the heart of the Church Street shopping area.

The candy is delicious! We went to the factory expecting a tour. It's free.. but it's not a tour. It's a video in front of a glass window into the factory. Skip the tour - eat the candy and don't skip the hot chocolate. Many locations through out the city to purchase candy.

Its wonderfully handmade USA chocolates, with tours and open look on to the delectable confection floor. Sure, you can buy these wonderful chocolates at Whole Foods and other fine stores... but nothing like visiting where it all happens. I don't know if I showed up on an off day, but I couldn't give it the 5th star because of how... More
