“Chocolate Makes You Happy!” reads the tag line for Vancouver’s first hot chocolate festival. I couldn’t agree more. Actually, correction: I couldn’t have agreed more two months ago when my pants fit perfectly & mid section didn’t jiggle like a bowl full of jelly; before the onslaught of xmas baking, boozing & overindulgent feedings resulted a soft 10 lbs accompanying me back home to Vancouver.
Who am I kidding, I could be late Marlon Brando, shut-away-on-my-own-private-island, sized & still have my eyes roll back in ecstasy with a fine nibblet of chocolaty goodness.
Enter the Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival: 30 days, 50+ flavors, presented by 7 Chocolatiers. Oh, and one “gelato guy.”
The menu changes daily so check the calendar & plan your attack accordingly. Today’s lineup features:
-Dark Rum & Eggnog Truffle
-Honey Nougat & Hazelnut
-Spicy Ancient Aztec Heart
-Mandarin & Dark Chocolate
-Classic Hot Chocolate with Soft Caramel & Fleur de Sel
-Hazelnut with Crown Royal Marshmallow
Roll down to 1 of the 7 select cafés & let the happy times commence! The festival runs until Feb 13th.
