JOin us for our 1 year anniversary - April 6th
Can you believe its been a year since we moved to our Ross Street location? Neither can we, but what an amazing year it was. Our team has grown, we have seen so many happy customers enjoy our products, and have had the joy of being part of so many great events.
It’s time to celebrate! We would not be where we are today without YOU and this community. So to THANK YOU, for everything you have done, we are giving back. But we need your help!
Join us April 6th between 10am and 5pm for a day of celebration and giving back. We will be serving free cake all day (or until we run out), have amazing prizes generously donated by local businesses and individuals, and of course have a store full of delicious treat. But the best news? It’s all for a great cause, which we want YOU to pick!
On this day, $2 from every macaron sold, 10% of sale, and donations will all be given back into our community.
So, where is the money going? Well, we need YOU to choose.
We are looking for the perfect place to give. It could be to a deserving person, a fundraising initiative, a family in need of financial assistance, or anyone who would benefit from a hand up.

Winning Brozen at the International chocolate awards
After winning bronze awards at the Canadian portion of the international chocolate awards, we were excited to ship our Cranberry Sage and Peach Iced Tea bonbons onto the International Chocolate Awards in Italy.
We were so humbled to hear and are excited to share the news that our Cranberry Sage took home a bronze medal.
It’s an incredible experience to find out our chocolates are among some of the best in the world, according to this prestigious competition.
Be sure to stop into our shop and try them soon.
Winning Bronze at the 2018 canadian national competition
This year, two of our bonbon style chocolates took home a bronze medal at the Canadian portion of the International Chocolate Awards.
Our Cranberry Sage, a milk chocolate ganache paired with a fresh cranberry jam, and Peach Iced Tea, a dark chocolate ganache infused with peach and black tea, were our winners for the year.
Last year, due to shipping issues, our chocolates never made it to the worlds. We just got them in the mail so here is hoping they make it this year. Fingers crossed.
We should know the result by mid November and will be sure to share any news.
Want to see the results of all the Canadian winners? Check out the link below. We are very pleased to be on this list with many of our fellow chocolatiers across the country that we admire. Congratulations to all the winners!
Thanks you for joining us for our grand opening
We want to thank everyone for joining us for our grand opening. It was an overwhelmingly successful day and we are so happy to be part of this community.
This day was not just about chocolate because all the proceeds of macaron sales went directly to our Friend Tyler Warren, battling grade IV Glioblastoma, a very rare form of brain cancer. Ty has been fighting for 4 years against this terrible disease, undergoing multiple brain surgeries, rounds of chemo and radiation, and several trial treatments. And now it time to look into more treatments that are extremely costly.
With your help we ended up raising $4,600. From macarons sales, to raffle tickets, to donations, we were blown away with the generosity shown. There was around 500 people here throughout the day and we doubled our original fundraising goal.
So thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who came out to show support.
Thank you for joining us for this amazing cause.

Winning Silver at the Canadian National Competition
We are so excited to announce that our Red Wine Cherry chocolate won a silver medal at the Canadian National Competition of the International Chocolate Awards. This year, we submitted four items. All our entries made it in as finalists for judging before the grand jury, with these bonbons taking home a medal.
We are so proud to have this chocolate qualify for the International Chocolate Awards, taking place in London, England. Due to shipping issues, our submission never made it to the competition. This is just driving us to work hard over the next year developing new recipes, flavour combinations, and designs.
Keep an eye out for these, they will be hitting our shelves soon.
