Going away? There are some great chocolate shops around the world…

Dahso European Chocolates from Toronto

I’m originally from Toronto and so when I visit, I like to discover new chocolate places.  I find most use Callebaut, buy pre-made chocolates from the same chocolate supplier in Belgium and are generally unoriginal.  I found only Soma Chocolates, ...

Moroco Chocolat – The Unauthorised Review

This review is illicit. That’s right – it’s forbidden. Just by reading it you could be part of the conspiracy. It’s risky and so unless you’re ready to defy “her” you’d best change to a different review now. Why is this ...

Xococava Chocolate in Toronto

Born on the 1st of July 2008, Xococava is one of the newer chocolate shops to hit Toronto.  Located in Deslie Court just north of the St Clair subway station, this ideally located chocolate shop brings some of the most ...

Bandy Brooks Chocolates in Berlin

I originally found this chain as the Australia Ice Cream and Chocolate shops in Amsterdam.  Here in Berlin they are Bandy Brooks with ice cream and a range of chocolates.  These aren't the best chocolates in the world and really ...

Stubbe Chocolates in Toronto

Stubbe chocolates are some of the best chocolates in the world.  This is the conclusion I have come to after trying chocolates in various cities across the world and while limited in experience though I may be, this chocolate shop ...

Soma Chocolates in Toronto

Hidden in the distillery district, the casual visitor will not find Soma. In fact, the determined visitor also may not find Soma, as I found out.  Thank goodness for the kindness of Torontonian strangers!  I finally found my way out ...

Simone Marie Belgian Chocolates in Toronto

I am passionate about chocolate, as is clear from this blog. I seek out everywhere I can to find the novel, unique, top quality and enjoyable chocolates.  Sometimes I win and sometimes I have to scrub my tongue in order ...

Godiva Chocolates in Yorkdale Toronto

Godiva chocolate is probably the first chocolate someone tries when they try a better quality of chocolate.  While stuffed full of additives, these chocolates are definitely a step up from ordinary chocolates. The packaging here is one of the high points ...
