Subscription Options

Only two more months to indulge in exclusive, award-winning Canadian chocolate, crafted by dedicated and creative local entrepreneurs - April will be our last subscription month!

Bean-to-bar chocolate-making is the latest trend in Canada's chocolate industry.  Just a few years ago, there was a single Canadian crafter, making chocolate in small batches,using high-quality cacao beans imported from various growing regions close to the equator.  In the last few years, more and more artisan chocolate makers have popped up in various cities across Canada. Why does an entrepreneur want to make chocolate directly from the bean?  The challenge of creating something entirely unique; a desire to support cacao farmers and their families; a belief in 'healthy eating'. Whatever the reason, we're all the beneficiaries, as these creative Canadian entrepreneurs are now winning medals at the world's most prestigious chocolate competitions.  Share in the journey and taste Canada's best chocolate with our monthly Bean-to-Bar subscription.

Each month, you'll receive 3 bars, each from a different maker, along with tasting notes from our co-curator, Lisabeth Flanagan, Canadian expert in all things chocolate.  Lisabeth writes The Ultimate Chocolate Blog, a wealth of info on chocolate makers from around the world, plus delicious recipes and so much more.  

The March collection includes these 3 bars:

73% Papua New Guinea made by Sweetness Chocolate, a small, specialty and craft chocolate maker located in Windsor Ontario. They make a variety of chocolate using ethically sourced beans and try to use organic ingredients whenever possible.

Campesino 74% made by Habitual Chocolate - Philippe Lehner is a Swiss trained baker, pastry chef and candy maker.  In 2013 Habitual Chocolate was looking for a chocolate maker, and he jumped at the chance.  Two years later he bought the business, and now offers 19 bean to bar flavours. All bars use ethically sourced agreements, free from soy, nuts and gluten, and there are 16 vegan options.  This particular bar is made from Peruvian chocolate, with nibs for texture and crunch. The taste of this bar has a smooth fruity raspberry hint.

70% Tumaco Colombia Bar made by Kin + Pod - This Alberta company is dedicated to making exceptional chocolate from bean to bar.  They care about where their beans come from and who's producing them. They make their chocolate in small batches, testing each one for quality. And they’re the proud recipients of three 2018 Gold Medals from the International Chocolate Awards.
