New this week:
We have mustered up a small army of chocolate Snowmen & Bonhommes de Neige. Each is mounted on a mound of chocolatey-rice crisps and filled inside, too. Come in while supplies last!
Looking for chocolate heaven? We are excited to introduce Lost & Found our new chocolate bar made with Pure Nacional Fortunato No. 4 chocolate, the world's rarest chocolate. This wondrous fine chocolate is known for its luscious chocolate flavour with fruit and nutty notes and lack of bitterness. 95% of the cacao trees were lost in 1916 due to disease and was found in 2007 in the Marañón River Valley in Peru. Discover this unique chocolate pleasure with a bar of Lost & Found. Press release.
We have also added a line of Swedish rotary tea lights and votives from Pluto Producer AB - great for gifts!
Award-winning Gem Chocolates is locally-owned and locally-operated on Vancouver's Westside in the Kerrisdale neighbourhood.
As an ethical chocolate shop, we use organic, fair trade, Rainforest Alliance-certified in our chocolates and confections. Being an artisan shop, we make small batches using fresh, and as many local ingredients as possible. We constantly dream up new flavour and combinations and our customers join in the fun with their suggestions - several that are now for sale, e.g., dipped licorice and apricots, and pralines Zebaroo and JB Caramels.
Select from our award-winning chocolates and our many new creations - every week we have something new! Natural flavours abound - nothing artificial, and preservative-free. Come and tantalize your tastebuds with our chocolate creations!
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!
