A Chocolate Competition in Vancouver!! Do they need volunteer tasters 🙂

Chocolate Is by far my favourite food group…it is a daily requirment…is it not? There are many Canadian chocolatiers that I love. The first one that comes to mind is Giddy Yoyo, also there’s Whistler Chocolate and I just discovered La Chocolaterie in Richmond ( his chocolates are to die for!


Chocolate, sign me up! It’s hard to pick just one chocolatier as my favourite. A few that I like in Metro Vancouver are Beta5, Chocolate Arts, Chez Christophe and Thomas Haas. Yum! 🙂


I’m with Laureen – sign me up as a volunteer taster! 😉

Chocolaterie de la Nouvelle France is my absolute favourite. Not only is their chocolate delicious, but their store is a little oasis on Main Street that has me imagining I’m taking a chocolat chaud break while exploring Paris.

That said, we have a wealth of fantastic chocolatiers in Vancouver – so much goodness to explore, in just about every one of our neighbourhoods.


My favourite is Chez Christophe… partly because he’s just a few minutes away for quick cravings. 🙂


There are so many chocolatiers that I adore! Zazubean, Cocoa Camino, Zimt, GLOW Raw Chocolate. I just discovered East Van Roasters – their bars are utterly delish.


We have some people on the east side making great chocolate too- Schocolade on Hastings street has delicious drinking chocolate & I love the raspberry rosemary Seasalt truffle from Artisan Chocolates by Trish sold at Renzo’s 1301 Commercial drive

Oooh, how amazing would this be…I have a sentimental attachment to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory – you can’t beat the smell walking into one of their stores!

chez christophe definitely, his shop in north burnaby sucks me in every time I’m there!

My favourite Canadian chocolatier is my father-in-law who has been making chocolates as a hobby for 30+ years. Good news is he is going pro in the next year! If we are talking bars of chocolate, I really like Organic Fair!


I do really like Galerie au Chocolat’s cocoa nibs bars. Locally though, I love the stuff at Chocolaterie de la Nouvelle France! (Beta5 is wonderful, as well, and of course Mink!)

I would have to vote for Koko Monk as my favourite chocolate!


My favourite would have to be Bernard Noir Chocolate! Best of the best!

Gem Chocolates on W. 41st Ave in Kerrisdale. There was all this hullabaloo about Mink winning best chocolate bar at the SF International Chocolate Awards last month, but Gem won the year before, and not just for chocolate, but for caramels. Gem is quietly doing its thing, and the chocolate is melt-in-your-mouth and totally worthy of the calories.

While I’m at it, Purdy’s pink himalyan salt-peanut butter chocolate is pretty much to die for. I can’t believe that Purdy’s hasn’t promoted it more, but more for me!
