How do you ‘choo-choo-choose’ something special for that person that has caught your eye? It’s as easy as downloading one simple Choco-locate app. You see I have done all the work for you (your welcome) and hit the pavement to visit every chocolate store in Toronto. Don’t believe me, go here: http://choco-locate.com/shops/
Yah, I told you so. I would like to think I know a thing or two about the best chocolate Toronto has to offer your Valentine or that ooey gooey budding romance on the horizon. I kid you not, give your crush a taste of chocolate bliss and they are yours forever and always... or at least until they finish the last bite.
Here are my top picks for Valentine Chocolate this year in Toronto (in no particular order because I am only human OK!):
➢ Spread your eternal love with a Black Pepper Rosemary Truffle
from Art Square Gallery and Café. Or whisper sweet nothings with the Pistachio Dark chocolate, made with Iranian roasted pistachios covered in 80% dark chocolate. All chocolate is organic and fair-trade, so you’re bound to get that warm and fuzzy feeling. Located across from the AGO.
➢ Heat things up with ChocoSol’s 5 Chili Bullet chocolate that awakens the palate and just might spice up your love life. Dating more of a plain Jane? Indulge in the Sinfully Raw Vanilla made with whole vanilla pods, raw cacao nibs and raw organic cane sugar. Find ChocoSol at Toronto Farmers markets, Evergreen, Dufferin Grove, Wychood, Sorauran, Apple Tree and CBC markets.
➢ Casanova is searching for his Venus, and CHOCOLATE by Wickerhead has got you covered!
Their solid Belgian chocolate Venus De Milo is simply 'Ooh la la!' Nothing says I love you like a Dark Chocolate Truffle. Chocolate by Wickerhead’s version is rich and intense with a dark Belgian chocolate cream finished with a hint of Port. Or whisper sweet nothings with the Bowmore Single Malt Scotch chocolate. Delicate on the tongue and the perfect way to end a romantic candlelight dinner. Chocolate by Wickerhead is location in the Beaches @ 2375 Queen St. E.
➢ Get your blood pumping with what I refer to as the one and only dark ‘crack’ chocolate. Hello ‘Scho-ka-kola’! Night nurses swear by it because it’s basically the Red Bull of the chocolate world. It’s a real heart stopper. Dark chocolate with a kick, the natural caffeine from cacao, coffee and cola nut extract to keep you alert. I don’t think your Doctor would approve, but you don’t have to tell him. I will mention to you, so I can sleep easy tonight, “Users beware, only two pieces at a time.” Available at Old Country Gift Shop in Roncesvalles.
➢ Your valentine will devour the classic mint chocolate smoothie from M. Thompson Chocolates. Luscious milk chococlate square with a creamy mint center. Something for the traditionalist on your list.
So, there you have it! Toronto is your chocolate oyster. And if cupid hasn’t found his way to your doorstep in time this Vday, don’t sweat it. Just remember you’re the apple of my i…Phone.
