“Beautiful chocolates. Seriously, once you’re in the shop, just look at the display case. These are little pieces of art, hand craft and so pleasing to look at. I bought a box for a friend on the arrival of their baby, and another for a mentor, as gifts. The shop owner was lovely and packaged the purchases beautifully for gifting.” – Roxie Pepper
Purdys Chocolatier imports premium-quality products from around the world and, wherever possible, select local alternatives. On consistency, they never jeopardize, and you best believe that you can taste it. In downtown Vancouver, Canada, their founder, Richard Carmon Purdy, began selling handmade chocolates in 1907, and since then, they have expanded. As passionate individuals, everyone at Purdy’s is very much driven to lead you away from the usual, and give you a taste of exquisite chocolates that would keep you wanting more.

“A good client/friend of mine started bringing back these wonderful chocolates when she visited her daughter in Vancouver while we babysat her Labrador Retriever she bought from us. The kids certainly looked forward to their return… especially since she would bring back an amazing delicacy from your factory. That was over 20 years ago! We started sending our son and his wife and son Purdy’s chocolate from us for any occasion. They always remark on how wonderful these chocolates were. It’s a gift i don’t have to worry will not meet expectations. And so easy with their on-line website. Christmas is always a great event as they really look forward to the huge box of assorted chocolates” – Jo Ann Neff
Daniel Chocolates aims to provide clients with the purest, richest, most authentic chocolate experience.

He subsequently mastered his craft into what no one was doing, inspired by master chocolatiers, which is to produce his art using the highest and most fresh ingredients.

“This is the best chocolate from a local chocolatier I ever had. They claim to use more cocoa and less sugar and you can taste it right away. Their milk chocolate has the same amount of sugar than their signature dark chocolate.” – Amanda Heredia
Kasama Chocolate has been deeply enthusiastic about all facets of the process after producing its first batch of bean-to-bar chocolate in 2015. Wanting to create unique chocolates, they acknowledge that there are a variety of factors that can be modified to modify the taste of the finished product, from sourcing the cacao beans, to playing with various roasting processes, to grinding and conching. Whenever possible, in their bars and truffles, they love to use ingredients from local farmers and manufacturers. As locals, they respect a climate of shared cooperation, encouragement, and community strengthening very much.

“Kasama has expanded what I thought chocolate could be. It’s the best chocolate I’ve ever had. The artistry and uniqueness in every bar shows how much love and respect is put into their craft. The art, poetry, unique beans from around the world and fascinating collaborations with local artisans creates an incredible product. If you like chocolate, I recommend you treat yourself to something truly special.” – Lee Orr
