All staff were knowledgable and friendly. Tour was informative and the tour guide was great at answering all questions. The samples were delicious. Purchased factory seconds truffles for half the cost and they were so creamy and very pretty. A fun stop for the whole family!

They have a big variety of chocolates and also sell ice cream in chocolate dipped cones. The waffle cone was $7 which I don't think was worth it. Skip the ice cream n indulge in a piece of chocolate

If you visit Burlington during the summer you need to stop by to try their delicious vanilla ice cream!

They are on the outskirts of Burlington but have tours, plenty of samples and good chocolate. We enjoyed the taste tasting and if it was cooler would have enjoyed some of their hot chocolate as well. Not cheap but then you get what you pay for.

Chocolates are amazing. Chocolate cherries are worth trying (be careful there is alcohol in them). Overall a great friendly place that was fun to visit

I came especially from out of town because I'm obsessed with the hazelnut bar. I was deeply disappointed. I don't like any of the other chocolates and my favorite is more expensive here. The self guided tour is kinda amateur o say the least. Expected better :(

We arrived too late for the candy factory tour, but bought candy though! Was the best salted caramels we've had! We enjoyed them to the end of our trip!

Heard lots about this place so we were excited to visit here. Although there were 3 employees behind the counter and no other customers except us, we were not greeted with so much as a smile. No offer of a tour or sample of chocolate. They just kept talking amongst themselves -- so cold! We felt like a bother. Incredible,... More

Dear Donna, I am so sorry to hear about your experience visiting our store the other day. We strive to have exceptional customer service and it is unacceptable to us that you were not greeted with a hello and a smile and felt welcome in our store. We always have plenty of samples and we do offer free factory tours... More
