This was a compete waste of an hour.The ice cream and chocolate sales staff took a very long time to answer our questions about where the advertised tour began, serving multiple ice cream cones and making chocolate sales instead. When they finally told us where to go for the "tour" - turned out this was not a tour. It was... More

If you like chocolate you will be very happy you visited here. Very nice chocolate shop that makes everything fresh on site. You can get a look into the factory through an area at the back of the shop. We missed the tour but did the self guided tour which is basically a video that describes their operation. The factory...

We stopped by for a tour this week and had a very nice time. The tour is free and very informative. The person giving the presentation explained the entire chocolate making process very well. They had samples of the cocoa bean in its various stages of production. There is also a wall of windows where you can actually see the... More

A great place for chocoholics! The tour is just looking through the glass window into the factory, but they explain so much about chocolate. From growing to processing, they explain it all. Of course the best part is tasting, what would such a tour be without samples! Delicious samples! They even had samples on the counters. A little pricy, but... More

I can't see paying $21 a pound for chocolate. Beautiful store no one even acknowledged we were there. I am finding that the norm in the state of Vermont.

We dropped in just missing the last tour as were told by a young lady with a plate full of samples for those in the tour. We walked around the shop waiting for a chance to do a self-guided tour. When the tour ended, the young lady with samples sought us out to share the samples that weren't eaten by... More

We did the short information video on how chocolate is grown and made. It was very informative. You could look down in the factory and watch the workers pouring molds and other things. Chocolate is very good!

Yes the chocolate is expensive, but it's worth the money. This is not your mass-manufactured Hershey's or Nestle chocolate for children - this is more sophisticated chocolate for adults and children. We personally like to shop for local food products as gifts for family and stopping in at Lake Champlain Chocolates was worth the long walk from downtown...and they have... More

High markets for a milkshake, scoops, and an affogato. Maple anything. Chocolate anything. Virtually impossible to make a poor choice,

The tour is basically a short lecture on how Lake Champlain makes their chocolate. This is very informative and interesting. You are able to see some of the process from the lecture area. Samples of cocoa nibs and some of the candies are also given. This is a good free tour of how they make their chocolate.
