Happy Birthday, Canada! In observance of the statutory holiday, we will be closed July 1st & 2nd, and will return on Friday, July 3rd.
Fresh from our chocolate lab where we are creating new flavours, we have introduced a number of new chocolates and more will be coming soon. We are playing with summer's fresh fruits, herbs and more to create modern flavour combinations. So stop by the shop to see what's new.
Looking for a creative gift? In addition to our individual chocolates, we also have ladybugs, seals, penguins, and many more playful shapes made with chocolate for gifts.
Newest chocolate creations:
Moustache: beer-reduction ganache...in time for Father's Day
Cézanne: pear-rosemary ganache
Asiago: dry Italian cheese ganache
Mamma Mia: sun-dried tomato pesto ganache
Make Mine a Mojito: lime, mint and rum...feels like Summer!
