BOOM! BAM! We did it!

Posted on July 16, 2012 3:28 PM by Meghan

While we are missing the sweet and soulful sounds of the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival, it is still a time to celebrate!  Our limited edition spicy chocolate bar, BOOM! BAM! Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Experience Bar, created to raise funds for the FlynnArts “LCC Youth in Jazz Scholarship,” was an incredible success!

Festival goers and chocolate fans helped sell 1,361 bars, which raised over $3000 towards the scholarship fund.  The funds will go towards creating more opportunities in performing arts education for young musicians in Vermont. 

We are so proud, not only to be a sponsor of the Jazz Festival for 15 years running, but for the opportunity to give back to the community in such a meaningful way.

We had so much fun creating the BOOM! BAM! bar and are already looking forward to next year.

Any ideas of a new and crazy flavor that reflects the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival?  Let us know!!

One more day until the 29th Burlington Discover Jazz Festival descends on our home city of Burlington, VT—and we could not be more excited!  The energy and positive vibe that flows through the city for 10 days is unlike anything else that happens here. 

We like to think of the Jazz Fest as the official kick-off to summer.  And so you’ll start seeing our ice cream cart popping up all over town— City Hall Park, Waterfront Park, Church Street and who knows where else…. (There may be some surprise appearances- follow us on Facebook and Twitter to find out more).  

And we are also thrilled to present the BOOM BAM Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Experience Bar.  This limited-edition bar, whose flavor celebrates the heritage of jazz, is available during the festival to support a newly established Youth in Jazz Scholarship.  Everyone needs at least one BOOM! BAM!  And you only have until June 10 to get one.

Ice cream.  Chocolate. Live music. June in Vermont.  Life doesn’t get much better.

See you out there!


Ice Cream & Jazz!

Posted on May 26, 2009 9:46 AM by Jason

After our long Vermont winter, summertime is finally just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with Ice Cream and Jazz! That’s right the Burlington Discover Jazz Fest is fast approaching. This is one of Burlington’s great events and a lot of fun for the whole town. With free Jazz shows as you walk up and down Church Street and concerts at the waterfront, it’s no wonder why so many travel guides sing its praise.

For over 10 years, Lake Champlain Chocolates (LCC) has been a sponsor of the Discover Jazz Fest…just one of many ways we like to support our community. LCC will be making appearances throughout the festival selling Ice Cream at several events/locations. That’s right, Lake Champlain Chocolates not only crafts luxurious Chocolates but for those of you who did not know, we have also been perfecting our small batch Ice Cream for the past 8 years.  Ice cream was a natural progression for us and another great excuse to support our local dairy farmers.  We have developed some really excellent flavors, including Belgium Chocolate, Vanilla Bean (boring maybe, but still my favorite), Chocolate Banana, Coffee, Mocha Chip, Vanilla Chip, Maple Butter Pecan, Almond Butter Crunch, and Chocolate Hazelnut.  To sample some during Jazz Fest, catch us at the following events:



June 6 – City Hall Park, Big Joe Burrell Day
June 11 – Waterfront Park Funk Tent
June 13 – Waterfront Park World Tent

In Vermont, we may endure some long, cold winters but that just gives us an excuse to celebrate the warm seasons a little bit more. Come join us at this year’s Jazz Fest which runs from June 5th to the 14th. For more information, check out www.discoverjazz.com.
