ExNE would not be possible without the support of our sponsors--and we aren't just saying that. Without our sponsors, there would be no money raised for these great local food organizations, no free music or classes, and no celebration of our incredible local food culture. Please help us say thanks to them!

Made in Vermont Since ’83, Vermont is more than an address for this chocolate company. It’s home — where we live, who we are, and how we do business. It’s also where we make our chocolates — right here in Burlington by the shores of Lake Champlain. And from the first truffle in 1983 up to the present day, Vermont has inspired us to take a craftsman’s approach to chocolate: creativity, patience, and mastery. To Bring You The Best: That’s the mission. It’s why we show up every day. To make chocolates that amaze with fresh ingredients and exquisite flavor. A few things have changed over 30 years, to be sure. What started with chocolate truffles has grown to include hot chocolate gifts, organic chocolate, sea salt caramels, and other tempting treats.
