Lucinda Gregory started The Chocolate Barn nearly 30 years ago. This Vermont jewel is actually in a 19th century barn and features more than 50 kinds of hand-dipped chocolates and many flavors of fudge. But the real story here is her enormous collection of antique European chocolate molds. Big, small, simple, ornateâ€”there are molds for every holiday, mood and occasion.
There is a always a variety of these solid molded chocolates available in milk, dark and white chocolate (they are made using Peter's chocolate). Best of all, you can phone in an order requesting any of the molds in the shop. They are (very reasonably) priced by weight; the chocolates in the photo above cost between $5 and $12.
The shop also sells some antique chocolate and ice cream molds, and a range of local artisinal products.
