Ok, you don't get to walk the floor of this small factory. Once you get over that, the 'tour' is excellent and informative. Of course, the best part is the samples. We sampled: dark chocolate with fruit, milk chocolate, white chocolate, simple dark chocolate and an amazing APPLE CIDER chocolate. Jon, our "tour guide" was so upbeat and friendly, and... More

This factory store offers tours, tastings and a store to purchase delicious chocolates. I did a tasting - there were samples of different chocolate to taste. There was an employee to explain the offerings and answer any questions. After I tried the samples I went into the store to purchase some of the their delicious chocolate. They sell bars, bark...

Not much else to say it's not very different from any other chocolate you can get here in America. Maybe I'm biased as I have been overseas and tried other types and spoiled me but it's just average chocolate. And the tour is fairly standard. Go over the process see the inside of the factory through a windy sample some... More

We participated in the 1/2 "tour" and enjoyed it. I put tour in quotes because you are actually stationary with a view of the factory floor. A young man gave an engaging tutorial on where chocolate comes from and how it's processed and led a tasting of white, milk and dark chocolate. I was surprised, though, that the factory doesn't...

I really enjoyed their storefront on church street. By the suggestion of a local i for their ice cream as well and it was fantastic. I also bought some great single origin chocolate bars as well. Really great chocolates!

Really neat tour of the chocolate factory. They give the history of how they started and how they make their chocolates. Then you get to taste different chocolate. Seriously yummy! Worth the visit. Easy to find. Friend staff.

They have a wide selection of very nice chocolates of all different kinds. They also sell ice cream that we enjoyed. They offer a few tables for outdoor seating. They also make some of their goods right in house and you can watch them make it through the window.

Visited the outlet in Burlington and was able to taste the different chocolate flavours. Also got to try and identify the process for making each which was quite fun. The tours did not happen on weekends so if anyone wants to see that, they need to visit during the week. Gift shop had the usual souvenirs as well as ice... More

We arrived right after the last tour took place - only to learn that it's really not a tour, just a presentation and video with history and a view into an area of chocolate making. So essentially you're just going to a chocolate store. There are plenty of options to choose from but everything is ridiculously overpriced! There's a section... More
