The Chocolate Barn
Ranked #1 of 1 Dessert in Shaftsbury
Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 September 2017 via mobile

Ok, never mind that the chocolates are utterly wonderful. They are. And the fudge. And the chocolate dipped apricots. All exquisite. Life's little pleasures. But, Tom, one of the owners and persons always there , also makes their own ice cream. Hey, ya wanna talk FRESH? Ya wanna talk LOCAVORE? How about fresh picked local raspberries in happy cow Vermont milk churned into ice cream by a Vermonter (ok former flatlander but that was years and years ago before the vision of a better place slowly sunk in like your tires on a dirt back road during Mud Season). THIS IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS FOLKS. The local inns ask these people to please give them some to serve their guests!! Chocolates, fudge, candy, ice cream. You will be well satisfied and leave happy. You can even take some ice cream back with you because they have a super duper freezer that will freeze it for you to like the temperature on the Moon. (Request in advance).If ya from Brooklyn or thereabouts, and ya bring some back for the homies, they gonna plotz!

GREAT ice cream!! Made right on premises!! We tried the Scotch ice cream and the maple mix. So many chocolates to select!! Sweets were soooo good!!! The Scotch ice cream was my favorite (made with real scotch!!!) Oh My!!!! We sat outside and enjoyed the breeze and the ice cream. The store inside have some nice ornaments (which we bought some too to take back with us). Highly recommend to give it a try!! I wanted to get more sweets!!!! :)

Stop here for great old fashion ice cream made by hand in the summer. Also, there is a large variety of chocolates and they are good. Makes a nice gift.

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.
