We are forever in awe of the variety and quality of Vermont-made products. It’s particularly inspiring when it comes to our chocolate. Did you know that we have more than 25 chocolatiers in our tasty little state? Some handcraft each piece, others produce chocolates on a larger scale and are nationally known. Either way, they are still decadent and highly sought-after treats!
Vermont's Own shared a building with the renowned Middlebury Chocolates until just recently when they moved to a larger production facility. It was a blessing in disguise for us, because it was our chance to start carrying their chocolate bars, made in small batches with beans from fair trade cacao farms from places like Guatemala and Belize. Folks stop in and say, “I heard a rumor you carry Middlebury Chocolates” and we’re always happy to confirm it’s true!
Probably Vermont’s most well-known and largest chocolate producer is Lake Champlain Chocolates. They have something for everyone from truffles, to their boxed Chocolates of Vermont, and their chunky Five Star Bars which are a superior chocolate caramel bar. They also have award-winning hot chocolate!
Just like Vermont's world-renowned craft beer and cheese, our chocolate is also definitely something to write home about ... Wow! Now we are all craving chocolate here at the store! We might have to break into some of these salted black rum caramels! When it comes to shopping Vermont for Valentine's Day, you simply cannot go wrong by stopping in to see us! Your sweetie will love these confections as much as we do!
