Wouldn’t it be great to grow up going to school next to a chocolate factory? The students of Champlain Elementary School on Pine Street in Burlington certainly think so! Lake Champlain Chocolates’ Factory Store sits right next door to the elementary school, which is very evident at 2:45 every weekday when the students stop by for their afternoon snack. Our all-natural gourmet truffles and Five Star Bars are always popular with the students (especially in milk chocolate), but the last few days of school and the beautiful early summer weather brought a big rush in the cafe.
The retail staff was rapidly scooping ice cream and making milkshakes to keep up with the orders, and smiles were definitely all around. School’s out for summer now, but our after-school regulars know that there are plenty of perfect ice cream days still to come!
