We Love Chocolate
We started this tour because we simply love chocolate, and till today, you can’t get us to shut up about it! When we first started researching for this tour, we had to abandon the idea because there were not enough unique chocolate options within walking distance, and we were not about to offer a sub-par tour to other chocolate lovers. However, things finally changed for the sweeter a few years back.
We now have a tour that we, as fellow chocoholics, can be proud of.
Meet Award Winning Chocolatiers
Toronto (and Canada) is fairly young in the chocolate industry, compared to cities like London and Paris. However, we’ve made great strides in recent years. SOMA Chocolate, one of our tour partners, has won several awards at the International Chocolate Awards and the Academy of Chocolate. Their 2 stores boast a huge variety of bars from different cacao origins, which sometimes makes it hard to decide which chocolate to purchase. Fear not though, as we’ll walk you through how to taste and choose chocolate while on the tour, leaving you with a better idea of your personal chocolate palate.
SOMA Chocolate is one of the handful of chocolate makers in Toronto, who import cocoa beans and make the chocolate from scratch, experimenting with various techniques to tease the best flavours out from the beans. In contrast, most of the chocolate shops in Toronto work with high quality couverture chocolate from companies such as Valrhona, Cacao Barry and Callebaut, mixing various chocolate with flavours, nuts, and so forth to form their own beautiful creations. You’ll get a good representation of both types of chocolate shops on the tour, as well as other stores that work with chocolate in various ways. We’ll visit a patisserie with a different flavour chocolate bar for every alphabet, as well as a chocolatier who uses her years of experience in spices to create intriguing chocolate truffles. Whether your affinity is for dark chocolate or white chocolate, you’ll find something to love on this tour.
