    If Rheo Thompson Candies could figure out how to bottle the scent of chocolate in their store they’d make millions. Until then they’ll stick to making candies and chocolate. The aroma upon entering their store is intoxicating; you’d be crazy not to leave with a box full of your favorite chocolate fix.

Besides if I am a celeb I am probably on some crazy diet and can only eat vegan chocolate or if I am Angelina (hey, I girl can dream OK) I will only purchase fair trade. Don’t worry Angie, Choco-locate has got you covered. Download the Choco-locate app and volà, an entire listing of artisan, vegan and fair trade chocolate in Toronto.

    Display Case
    As you might have guessed ‘Beanermunky’ is not actually a type of monkey but the combination of chocolatier, Lori Eisenberger son’s childhood nicknames.
