 …and how we’ve established such a fervent following

 Ten:  We’re a part of the Vermont Fresh Network, which means we strive to build innovative partnerships among farmers, chefs and consumers to strengthen Vermont agriculture.

Nine: Because it’s made in super small batches by one person in one five-gallon ice cream maker.


 Eight: Our Maple Butter Pecan is hands down the best maple ice cream around.

Seven:  Our Ice Cream Cafes can turn any ice cream flavor into a milkshake.  What’s better, the milkshakes are made from only two ingredients: fresh Vermont milk and local Vermont ice cream.  But you can always have us add some malt powder if you like.

Six:  Our ice cream is the perfect compliment to our 75% cocoa content Tanzania chocolate sauce.  And fresh whipped cream.

Five:  We have two flavors of sorbet.  Not only vegan and low-calorie, but out-of-this-world-amazing.

Four:  Our famous handcrafted Almond Butter Crunch has made its debut as an ice cream flavor.

 Three:  You can buy pints of our ice cream along with your weekly groceries at Shelburne Supermarket, City Market or Healthy Living. 

Two:  We have three scoop shop locations in Vermont.  Visit any of our stores for a timeless treat all year long.

One:  There couldn’t be a better scoop of chocolate ice cream than the one made with gourmet Lake Champlain Chocolates.

Sorbet is back for the summer!

If you live locally or have had the opportunity to visit any of our retail locations here in Vermont, you may have sampled our ice cream. Available in a number of flavors including Belgian Chocolate (of course) and Maple Pecan, it’s fast become a favorite to locals and visitors alike. In fact, I’ve found many occasion to stop in the factory store and sample a vanilla malted milk shake made with extra extra malt. But now, the surest sign that summer has arrived to the North Country is visible– sorbet has returned to Lake Champlain Chocolates!

Don’t get me wrong, I love ice cream. I eat it no matter what the weather is. It’s just the way it is. But when summer hits, our Mango and Strawberry Sorbets are where it’s at for me. Cool and sweet with the biggest fruit flavor you can imagine, there’s nothing like it. If I had to choose just one, I’d go with the Mango. I heart mangos! But luckily, I don’t have to choose. I just have to eat my share before the leaves fall and the sorbets leave us until another summer comes.

If you’re in the area, stop in for a sample. Can I say it’s life altering? Ok, maybe not. I’m not much for the drama. But I can say it’s afternoon-altering

BTW - In talking to the girls in the factory store about the sorbet, they informed they ran out of it on the first day it was available as all the staff was getting sorbet for an afternoon treat. We know a good thing when we see it. Afterall, we are in the "good thing" business.
