This store is loaded with fresh chocolates and home made ice creams. Well worth the stop. We met a bus tour of German folks and chatted with them while eating our ice cream outside on the porch. Lots of antiques for sale as well.

What can be better than homemade chocolate and delicious maple ice cream? There's even a comfortable front porch where you can relax and taste a sampling of what you purchased.

Well worth a detour off Route 7 (onto 7A) to call in here (doesn't seem to be a lot else in Shaftsbury) to or from Manchester. Great selection of souvenirs and chocolates. We bought a beautiful hand-made ornament of copper maple leaves. Looking forward to...More

I don’t give out many 5 stars but this us one. The ice cream was great. Some flavors sell out on busy days as they make small batches daily. Some of the chocolate looked great. We'll worth the stop. Be careful backing out or pull...More
