    Default local chocolatiers

    I'm staying as a houseguest on saturday night with someone in Toronto, and I'd like to bring a gift. Wine can't be carried on the plane and this guy has a wine cellar that would make your eyes bleed anyway.

    I figure some local artisan chocolates might be a nicer gesture (unless anyone her can think of something that is a better idea).

    There's obviously callebauulaetaut...but are there any other/better options?

    Yeah if you want the guy calabault, it's papachoc now. If you want the brand callbeault, it's that name.

    I'm not classy enough to comment on which is better. I eat dairy milk.

    Callebaut is a unique situation, since he's from the Callebaut family and that family makes a lot of chocolate that has nothing to do with him. And the old BC name is gone, it's called Cococo, probably because the larger Callebaut mafia threatened to kill them if they kept the name.

    Anyhow here's a list of some places in town:

    My mom used to take us every year for a tour at Oliviers. Legit long-standing tradition that place.

    I remember back in the day Callebaut used to have a yellow 993 Turbo parked in his VIP reserved spot out front.
    I was in the same situation as Buster once and gifted some Calgary themed chocolate (cowboy hat etc) from Callebaut. It was really enjoyed and appreciated by my host.

    Chocolate lab looks great. Craving chocolate now RIP

    Terrible chocolate. Dumb flavours and actually tossed 90% of a box out. Will never use that place again.
