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. 

For more about Tyler and this journey, check out his blog or Facebook below.

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. 

You can get more information on the International Chocolate Awards below.
