Lake Champlain Chocolates on Trek Travel's Vermont Cycling VacationVermont: Lake Champlain Chocolates
It all started in a restaurant kitchen in Burlington, Vermont. During the holidays, Jim Lampman would buy fancy chocolates to give to his staff. Until one Christmas, when his pastry chef confessed what he really thought of those chocolates. The result was a batch of hand-rolled truffles so smooth and creamy, so deep in pure chocolate flavor — after just one bite, Jim knew they were onto something. Within a year the restaurant was sold and Lake Champlain Chocolates was born.

Dumon Chocolatier on Trek Travel's Belgium Cycling VacationBelgium: Dumon Chocolatier
The story of Dumon Chocolatier starts back in 1992, when Stephan Dumon started a small-scale production of artisan truffles for bakeries and pastry chefs nearby in Torhout (just outside Bruges). Very soon neighboring citizens in Torhout asked if they could buy from him as well, so a small shop was set up in the garage. In 1996 Stephan’s mother opened her own unique shop in the town centre of Bruges, and ss popularity of our chocolates grew, the production-facilities grew as well.
