Our First Blog Contest – Win a Cookbook and Chocolate!

OK. Here it is. The first giveaway we’ve done on the blog. And it’s pretty cool. See, when I started gathering gift ideas for my chocoholic friends, one of the items I came across was this clever little cook book – 101 Things To Do With Chocolate, part of the 101 Series by Stephanie Ashcroft. […]

Stop the Presses! LCC is in the NY Times!

If you didn’t believe me when I told you Burlington, VT was a cool place to come visit, now I have proof. The NY Times Travel section ran an article called 36 Hours in Burlington, VT where they chronicled their 1 ½ day visit to the Queen City. And guess what. They included a nice […]

We Got Trick-or-Treated! Mmmm, Halloween and Fall Chocolates…

How many times can I say how much I like my job? I can’t help it. It’s true. Not only do I get to spend my time telling people about the yummy chocolate but today, we were all trick-or-treated by the company. Each employee came in to work to find a goodie bag with some […]

The Witching Hour is Near…

We’re merely two days out from Halloween? How many bags of trick or treat candy have you bought? How many have you eaten?

I know I’ve told you in the past about some of our more traditional wedding and event favors like our gold ballotin boxes with truffles and the sheer organza bags with chocolate hearts but being that we’re coming into the holidays, it’s the perfect time of year to be a little less traditional and a […]

Chocolate Gifts to Give With Your Chocolate Gifts

I’m not a chocoholic. I admit it. I know true chocoholics and I pale in comparison when it comes to the lengths and heights they will go for good chocolate. I am a sugaraholic though and chocolate falls into that category. I just don’t discriminate between candies. Truffles, candy corn, chocolate bars, jelly beans, bubble gum […]

Making Chocolate – Not How We Do it Here but Fun to Watch!

After all the giggles I heard from my co-workers as they watched the last I Love Lucy clip, I felt I needed to share one more. It's from the same episode and not as well known but since we make chocolate here as well as wrap it, I felt it appropriate. Some of you may […]

A Little Monday Morning Chocolate Humor – I Love Lucy, Too!!!

Here at the Chocolate Factory, it’s impossible to give a tour and not reference Lucy and Ethel in the infamous scene where they work as candy wrappers. For those of you who, like me, are old enough to remember watching I Love Lucy (first runs and reruns, both) I’m sure you recall that episode with […]
