Lake Champlain Chocolates does bars and coins very well. Their truffles are just OK. The factory store is clean, large, pleasantly staffed and had a giant section of factory seconds. These are the imperceptibly imperfect items that they don't feel they can put on store shelves; yours for 50% or more off. if you like chocolate and you're passing through... More

Came for the tour. It is not really a tour, you sit in seats and look through the glass at the workers, but you learn a lot about the history of the company and the process of making chocolate. Delicious free samples!

I'm a huge chocoholic and so was really looking forward to taking the 'tour' at Lake Champlain chocolates. However it turned out to be not actually what I'd class as a tour. Basically everyone just sits in a classroom type setting in an elevated area at the back of the store and then a staff member gives a presentation i.e.... More

Great (and free) view of the quality chocolate making process. Taste the types of chocolate and samples in the store. Check out the half off section.

Even though is way out of the normal tourist path, the Factory is well worth the visit. Their staff is incredibly friendly and eager to answer all questions. The tour of the plant is very interesting and the best part, as noted in all the other reviews, is the free sampling of all the chocolate - from your classic milk... More

Seemingly a quaint chocolate store from the outside, Lake Champlain Chocolates offer tours and chocolate tasting classes. We attended the latter, of which was informative, fascinating, and well-organized. Oh, and by the way, it included ample samples and was all FREE! You'll have a much greater appreciation for chocolate, as well as enjoy it more. Definitely check it out!

The chocolates here are very good, there is a wide variety, and it's a nice souvenir to bring home. There are some prepackaged chocolates, so you can know the price in advance. If you buy chocolate piece by piece, however, the price is based on type and weight, and you may be surprised (as we were) at how high the... More
