Our caramels are winners! We entered a caramel competition in California and won two Gold & one Bronze Medals. Woo hoo!
Award-winning Gem Chocolates is locally-owned and locally-operated on Vancouver's Westside in the Kerrisdale neighbourhood. We blend organic chocolate and fresh, natural 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. 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 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, 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!
The best compliment and award we can receive is the return or referral of a customer and to hear how our chocolates gave them intense pleasure. We want our customers to love our chocolates as much as we do. Thank you to all our customers for your business, your referrals and loving fine chocolate!
