    This is a lovely artisan chocolate shop but it has now recently moved from the Burrard st location. I saw it recently but can't remember the new location. I'll post it soon for all those chocoholics.

    Walking into this shop is a bit like walking into the chocolate store from the movie chocolate (Minus Johnny Depp). The first time I came here I was amazed with the passion of the woman working there. She convinced me to try some very strange sounding chocolates.

    The first was a chocolate bar with a layer of basil. It sounded wrong, but it is sooo delicious!

    The second was bacon bits. That sounded very wrong. But it was incredible. It was the perfect balance of sweet and salty, with just a tiny bit of crunch to add to the texture. Now Im hooked.

    Xoxolat sells a huge and impressive variety of imported chocolates that are rare finds in the city. The two I mentioned above are from their imported selection.

    They also make their own chocolates on site. The WestCoast Breakfast is a fantastic blend of Maple Caramelized Bacon with touch of espresso in deep milk chocolate. It is fabulous!

    I also have had the opportunity to sample a variety of flavors in a selection of truffles packaged in a gorgeous wooden box. I truly could not find a favorite because they were all so good. Not a miss amongst the large box.

    Their drinking chocolate is heavy, and almost a meal. But fantastic just the same.

    They also offer tasting classes in chocolate101. The owner's philosophy is that we should have chocolate everyday, but the key is to have quality chocolate in small amounts. She is very proud of the opportunity to educate people about chocolate in the same way people learn about wine. Highly recommended.
