The guide for the tour was excellent. She knew lots of chocolate facts plus gave us some good samples. The only disappointment was we couldn't actually be in the manufacturing area but had to look at the process from one set of windows. The chocolate is very good. The prices are pretty high, even for their idea of "seconds" -... More

At $39.00 per pound for pecan clusters and $3.00 each per truffle this place is a rip off. Prices are not displayed and for good reason. Won't be going back.

My husband and I went there it was awesome but we didn't get to hear about the factory but we could watch employees work and that was cool to us and they have a lot of parking

I've had lake Champlain chocolates before back at home (MA) but wanted to check out the hype. Sadly the tour only runs Monday-Friday so we could not do the tour but there was a demonstration going on when we arrive! We decided to get a few of each kind of chocolate which was pretty pricey but hey, it's a touristy... More

Great chocolates and free tour but a bit overpriced. The tour consists of taste testing and viewing the area where the chocolate is made. Free samples also in the gift shop area.

We always love a good candy store so it was a no-brainer to check out the factory tour here. While you don't actually go into the factory you can watch the entire operation from the viewing windows. Our tour presenter was knowledgable and interesting and you can sit down during the tour unlike most places. We also got to taste... More

If you've never tried Lake Champlain Chocolates, stop by and give them a try! They have a large variety of chocolates, ice cream and fudge. Try their Dark Mint Crunch chocolates - they're the BEST!

Champlain Chocolates is the go-to in Vermont (and everywhere by mail order) for European quality chocolates. Their ice cream reaches the same high bar. Dominican Republic rocks this chocoholic's world. Maple butter pecan, almond crunch, and (sigh) salted caramel hit similar bliss buttons. In winter, hot chocolate that honors the chocolate can be had here and in Waterbury near the... More

My friend and I stopped here for a tour and to purchase some yummy candy. It was interesting to learn how the chocolate is made and to sample some of it as well! I tried their black and white milkshake! Soooo good! Their apple cider caramels are a must buy!!!
