Fresh All Natural Chocolates from Vermont

Vermont Chocolate Company Releases New Fall Products

October 5, 2010 :: BURLINGTON, VT – With summer winding down, Lake Champlain Chocolates (LCC) is helping to rake in the fall season with the release of their Halloween chocolates and autumn-themed chocolates. In addition to annual favorites, LCC is premiering four new products that are sure to complement this year’s trick-or-treat bags and Thanksgiving tables.

“Not only did we want to expand our fall line, but we also wanted to create products that can easily be used at Halloween and Thanksgiving gatherings fit for both children and adults,” said Allyson Myers, Director of Sales and Marketing for LCC. “Customers can use these new Halloween chocolates in candy dishes, as gifts for your favorite trick-or-treaters or even as a small favor at a table place setting.”

This year’s new products include:

Autumn Chocolate Leaves: These handmade 54% dark chocolate leaves decorated with maple leaf accents are tied with an orange grosgrain ribbon and make for a fun fall treat or an elegant table favor at Thanksgiving.

• Dark Caramel Pumpkins: Festively wrapped in bright orange foils, these dark chocolate pumpkins filled with a sweet, creamy caramel offer a sophisticated and balanced taste that makes them the ultimate Halloween treat for both the young and young-at-heart.

• Assorted Pumpkins and Leaves: These irresistible chocolate leaves and pumpkins are sure to please your guests! A mouth-watering assortment of milk chocolate leaves with a creamy caramel center (gold foil); milk chocolate leaves filled with all-natural peanut butter (red foil); and dark chocolate pumpkins filled with sweet caramel (orange foil) make for great candy dish fillers.

• Haunted House Coin Box: This hauntingly delicious box is filled with milk chocolate coins (orange foil) and dark chocolate coins (gold foil). They’re the ideal gift for your favorite trick-or-treaters or to give as Halloween party favors.

Other popular Halloween chocolate gifts include the Pumpkin Face, a gourmet dark chocolate pumpkin face decorated with white chocolate tinted orange using all-natural annatto; a Spooky Cat, a 5-inch dark chocolate cat with an arched back, bushy tail and wide eyes; and a White Ghost, an eerie ghost made of pure white chocolate.

For Thanksgiving, putting LCC’s milk or dark Chocolate Turkeys at each place setting or a Chocolate Centerpiece Turkey will make for a show-stopping tablescape. Or, if someone else is doing the cooking, surprise them with a Lake Champlain Chocolates’ Selection Box. These chocolate gift boxes, with whimsical fall packaging, include a combination of the company’s best selling truffles, Chocolates of Vermont and peanut butter cups.
