Lake Champlain Chocolates Introduces New Chocolate Gifts for Spring

BURLINGTON, VT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 7, 2006 -- Lake Champlain Chocolates (LCC), a gourmet Vermont chocolate maker, has introduced its spring line of chocolate gifts for Easter, Administrative Professionals' Day, and Mother's Day 2007. Made in small batches from all-natural ingredients, LCC chocolates are carefully crafted into one-of-a-kind chocolate gifts for spring.

"Parents love being able to mix and match handmade bunnies and cream-filled eggs without having to worry about artificial ingredients and food coloring," said Allyson Myers, Director of Sales. "Filling Easter baskets with classic confections is worry-free when the entire line is made from fresh all-natural Vermont ingredients."

The Treasure Surprise Egg "cracks" open to reveal an assortment of filled eggs, solid squares, and milk & dark chocolate bunnies. New this year is 24-piece Square Medallions, featuring three different kinds of chocolate. The Foiled Eggs Gift Bag has a flavor for every taste -- raspberry cream, peanut butter, caramel, java, hazelnut praline, and coconut cream. "Customers wait all year for our filled chocolate eggs," said Myers. "Many flavors are only available at Easter." Eggs are also available in an oval Easter Egg Gift Box and in bulk countertop dispensers.

The Classic Easter Bunny, in both solid milk & dark chocolate in 5- & 61/2-inch tall sizes, is also available in solid white chocolate in the 5-inch size. Additional Easter bunnies are Placesetting, Mr. Goodtime, and Country. All come packaged in cellophane tied with a colorful ribbon. Hopp'n Bunny is a 41/2-inch tall milk chocolate rabbit in a gift box with a window.

Additional Easter gifts include the Carrot, Potted Eggs, Springtime Signature Squares, 2- & 5-piece Truffles, 15-piece Chocolate Assortment, Bunny Pop, and the Peanut Butter Egg.
