If you're in Burlington, VT, and you're a chocolate lover, then you need to stop here. There is a free tour, with free samples, what more could you want? I actually did learn something about where chocolate comes from, and how it's made (previously I would just scarf it down in mindless bliss). One thing I was a little disappointed... More

There isn't really a tour, per se. There is a raised seating area with a big window overlooking the production area where an employee will show you a video and pass around visual aids as well as one of each of the flavors of chocolate nibs - dark, milk, and white. There are also a couple of samples of finished... More

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.
