Award-winning Gem Chocolates is locally-owned and locally-operated on Vancouver's Westside in the Kerrisdale neighbourhood. Though we have won many awards in chocolate competitions, the best award we can receive is the return or referral of a customer and to hear how our chocolates gave them intense pleasure. Thank you to all our customers for your business, your referrals and loving fine chocolate!
At Gem Chocolates we blend organic chocolate and fresh, natural premium ingredients together, creating flavours that will dance across your palate. Each chocolate is handcrafted in the traditional artisan method in small batches without preservatives. Generally we have 25+ varieties available on a given day, so there's something for everyone.
We use as many BC-grown fruits from local markets as we can...blueberries, cherries and raspberries for a locally-grown burst of flavour. In our chocolate lab, we create pure and true flavours without extracts or oils. Come and tantalize your tastebuds with our chocolate creations!
Recent new creations from our chocolate lab include: lime-chili caramels, and toasted coconut & cardamom milk chocolates. And next week we will be adding a couple sugar-free chocolate confections to our collection.
Vegan? We also have vegan dark chocolate truffles made with coconut oil flavoured with natural lime or cherry. We also make a variety of vegan-friendly and Parve products, from dark chocolate bars (with and without inclusions) to candied fruits dipped in chocolate...and sorbetto, too!
Craving gelato or sorbetto? We have a selection flavours: mango, pistachio, sour cherry, chocolate-strawberry seduction, toasted almond, dark chocolate, coconut, raspberry, stracciatella and blueberry...just to name a few to choose from. Cool off with an affogato (meaning "drowned" in Italian): your choice of gelato with espresso poured over the top. It's the perfect alternative to iced coffee!
