“this town is delightful and the shoppes spectacular”

The Chocolate Moose
Ranked #44 of 75 things to do in Bar Harbor
Attraction details
Reviewed October 15, 2013

the scenery, and friendliness of this town is amazing and you have to eat a blueberry ice cream cone which is wonderful. So very many quaint shoppes and good maine lobster, delightful park and great lodging right in the town. Most reasonably priced town to shop in along Maine coast. Islands all over blueberries and moose items abound. My favorite coastal town in Maine., This is where you would see Cadilac Mountain, Mt. Washington, tallest east coast mountain and lovely arcadia national park. It is some place that you would want to stay for the summer and enjoy the delights this town offers. Great chocolate, fudge, ice cream and the wild mt. blueberry pie is a must and of course LOBSTER. This town has something for everyone and the men will even enjoy it here.

Elegant and cute all at the same time! "Like a kid in a candy store" suddenly became "like two adults in a chocolate store"....so fun. We got small samples of nearly every product in the store. We were undoubtedly one of the most annoying customers of the season, yet the staff was friendly and courteous the entire time. Not only were they wonderful, so was the chocolates!!! Every piece we had was wonderful. If we come back to bar harbor, we will definitely be back!

Can't begin to describe how much we liked this. It is about a 3 stores off of Main Street (behind Blaze), so we didn't discover it until there were 2 days left on our vacation. We quickly made up for lost time, by going there 3 times in a day and a half. It is all high-quality chocolate, with a good selection. They also have some non-chocolate items. The store is very well laid out, so you can view all the items and fill your own bags. They had some items we haven't seen in stores for years. Needless to say, it will be a must-return place on our next trip to Bar Harbor.

This place was not on Trip Advisor since it is so new.... I suggested it, since, well - we went there!

The Chocolate Moose is a gourmet chocolatier located on the Quiet side-street of Derby Lane. (Blaze is the current restaurant located at the corner).

WE decided to stop in for a look and were glad we did. The owners were very pleasant, and appreciative of our visit. we asked how long they were open, and then told us 2 1/2 months, so many folks don't know they are there.

The chocolate we bought was delicious! I especially liked the simple dark chocolate with salt coated almonds - just the right amount of salt. If you've never had salted chocolate, you owe it to yourself to try it ! The truffles and other sundry selections all looked very elegant, and all too scrumptious. I picked up a selection of dark chocolate delicacies, and all were exceptional.

We suggested that they go around to some of the B&Bs and get some deal going to get their chocolates out there so people would stop in.... I hope they do. After all, you can NEVER have enough chocolate in you life now can you?

Indulge and enjoy!
