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 you’re sick of hearing me talk about the cold weather here in VT. Believe me, I’m tired of talking about it and it’s only October. But we got a fair amount of snow in nearby areas and like I said a moment ago, it’s only October. I do, however, have a secret passion […]

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.

National Grouch Day – Celebrate (or Commiserate) with Chocolate

Ok. I missed an important holiday on my list of reasons to celebrate earlier this month. But, in light of the holiday itself, I suppose it’s fortuitous that I did. You see, I just found out October 15th is National Grouch Day. I tweeted people on Twitter yesterday to forewarn them. Thus not only would […]

Calling all Schools and Community Groups – Easy Fundraising!

I know one of my co-workers blogged about this a little while back but now that sports and youth programs are really kicking in, I’m getting a fair number of questions about fundraising opportunities with Lake Champlain Chocolates and I thought it beared repeating. We all have to deal with fundraising with our kids at […]
