Xoxolat—pronounced sho-sho-la—is one of Vancouver’s finest chocolate shops, luckily located in Kits at 8th and Burrard (formerly Monde chocolate). They carry Vancouver’s largest selection of single origin chocolate bars from around the world and are offering a worthwhile deal on chocs and Choc 101 seminars just in time for Valentine’s Day.
A quick perusal of the house brand demonstrates the chocolatier’s creativity. Flavours are very quirky and fun: WestCoast Breakfast (maple caramelized bacon with touch of espresso in deep milk chocolate), Tortilla Chip & Lime in Dark Chocolate and Sour Cherry & Chili in Dark Chocolate. They also offer tastings and classes in store, teaching participants about the many facets of chocolate and offering samples of different beans, origins, manufacturers and percentages of cocoa.
Xoxolat’s Vancouver Deal of the Day
A few of my friends took part in the Chocolate 101 seminar and had an amazing time. If you are also interested in checking it out your timing could not be better: Vancouver’s “deal of the day” with Dealfind is $20 for a Chocolate 101 class and a 16 piece box of chocolates ($20 for a $45 value) now until Thursday.
