New Easter Chocolates from Lake Champlain Chocolates

BURLINGTON, VERMONT – Lake Champlain Chocolates (LCC) is lending the Easter Bunny a helping hand this year, with a fresh crop of chocolate gifts perfect for the Easter holiday.

“It’s tradition at Lake Champlain Chocolates to provide consumers with their favorite chocolates and confections for family-oriented holidays like Easter,” says Allyson Myers, Director of Sales at LCC. “We’ve worked diligently to make sure our Easter chocolates are as satisfying and delicious as possible. Adding nostalgic favorites like an organic crisp rice bunny to our line of chocolate Easter bunnies is a guaranteed way to delight both grownups and children.”

Perfect for Easter baskets, or as a fun place setting for your holiday table, LCC now offers dark chocolate carrots, along with their popular milk chocolate carrot. Also new this year is the Organic Crunch’n Milk Chocolate Bunny, featuring crisp organic brown rice in sweet milk chocolate — a mouth-watering indulgence families can feel good about, and the perfect size for a child’s Easter basket.

LCC continues to carry their best-selling line of traditional Easter gifts, including a Classic Milk Chocolate Easter Basket (also available in dark chocolate) filled with all the essentials, from a chocolate bunny and eggs to all-natural jelly beans and a chocolate carrot. Another perennial favorite is their giant chocolate Easter bunny — a.k.a. “Mr. Goodtime” — who was recently named “best-dressed bunny” by Real Simple Magazine. This dapper rabbit sports a coat and bowtie, and is crafted from more than three pounds of pure milk chocolate. Plenty for the whole family!

About Lake Champlain Chocolates A pioneer in the American chocolate movement, Lake Champlain Chocolates is a family-owned company located in Burlington, Vermont. In 1983, Jim Lampman declared he would create upscale American chocolates that would “rival the Belgians.” Almost 30 years later, the Lampman family has done just that, by introducing European flavors and tastes using local, Vermont ingredients and by taking a craftsman’s approach to chocolate: creativity, patience and mastery. This level of care and craft leads to chocolates that win high praise, year after year, from customers and industry experts alike. Lake Champlain Chocolates are hand made by people who are passionate about their work; products include chocolate bars, as well as the best-selling Five Star Bars, truffles, caramels, gift assortments and gourmet hot chocolate and are available online, nationwide at specialty food and gift stores, such as Whole Foods Market, upscale hotels and inns, and at their three company-owned stores in Vermont.
