Valentine’s Day Giveaway Day 3:
Win a large Valentine’s Day Collection Box (hand crafted chocolate heart filled with handmade chocolates and truffles) by Thomas Haas Chocolates & Patisserie. Details on HOW TO ENTER after the jump.
About Pastry Chef and Chocolatier Thomas Haas:
Kitsilano received a much-needed confection injection when Thomas Haas, the fourth-generation pastry chef from Aichhalden, opened a retail store in the neighbourhood back in 2009.
Named one of the Top Ten Chefs in America by Chocolatier & Pastry Art and Design Magazine, Haas has worked in Michelin star joints (Daniel by Daniel Boulud) and appeared on “Martha Stewart Living.” Thomas Haas Fine Chocolates was also ranked high in the Top 20 Artisan Chocolatiers in Chocolatier Magazine‘s 20th anniversary issue.
About Thomas Haas Chocolates:
Perhaps the best way to learn about treats at Thomas Haas is to get away from the chef’s impressive resume and taste his chocolates. Thomas, along with wife Lisa, select only the best raw ingredients. Their chocolates are perfumed with fine BC wine, oak barrel aged maple syrup from Quebec, vanilla beans from Tahiti, fresh citrus zest, loose leaf teas and organic herbs and spices. Whenever possible Thomas Haas Chocolates sources products directly from the farmer. There are no preservatives or artificial flavours in their kitchens.
Thomas Has for Valentine’s Day:
While it’s always possible to build your own tiered gift box at Thomas Haas, the Thomas Haas Valentine’s Day Collection features six exciting new truffle heart flavours for 2012.
Valentine’s Day 2012 Truffle Heart Flavours
Dark: raspberry / salted caramel
Milk: lemon hazelnut praline / Marc de Champagne
White: passion fruit / mango coconut
Each festive, handcrafted chocolate heart in the Haas Valentine’s Day Collection (small $19; medium $35; large $49) comes filled with these truffles and other specialty chocolates.
For little ones, friends and co-workers, we’re loving the seasonal Chocolate Lollipops available in white, milk or dark chocolate with hand painted chocolate heart décor ($2.75).
When you drop in to shopped for loved ones, make sure and take advantage of the 2012 Hot Chocolate Festival, now through Valentine’s Day, and splurge on a treat for yourself.

SOFT CARAMEL & FLEUR DE SEL – dark chocolate
