Hannah and I went to the Lake Champlain Chocolates factory store today and were able to take a tour. The tour consisted of going onto a viewing deck and looking into the factory, because we were not allowed to actually go inside it due to health codes.
That is one of the machines that makes the truffles. The best part of the tour was the free samples!!! We had so much free chocolate there.
This is me with some chocolate robots. They were amazing!!! You couldn't touch them because they were made out of chocolate, obviously. I wanted to eat them.
Hannah and I were big fans of the factory deals. They had chocolate treats that were not up to their standards but still delicious. We went in on a deal that was buy one truffle box and get one free. It was awesome being able to be savvy shoppers today with Hannah. We also went in on a buy 8 pairs of underwear for 25 dollars deal later in the day. We both got four pairs! Who would need 8?
I shall leave you with a fantastic photo of the stairs that we have to go up to get to our apartment. Safe? I think not. However the guys that are fixing them are really nice. I think there is a hole in them right now, but who cares?! The apartment next to ours is vacant right now so I think they took the opportunity to put in new stairs while they could. I think they are building it piece by piece so that they don't have to actually take them down.
