Chocolate Tofino cranks out handcrafted chocolates and homemade gelato right in their cozy little shop. My friend told me that we needed to make a stop here during our long weekend out here. They have been making chocolate here since 2003. They never use artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives. Instead, they seek to incorporate organic and local flavours into their artisan chocolates and gelato.
They are located right in the area where Tofitian, Tacofino, Wildside Grill, Live to Surf, and Swell Juice Bar is located. If you’re visiting Tofino, there is a 100% chance you are paying them a visit.
What I love about Tofino is their inherent nature to be sustainable and be hyper local. They don’t make sacrifices to their quality of their product.
Everything is made here in this tiny shop.
The chocolates were tempting, but I stuck with their gelato. I should have grabbed a few things, but I’ll make sure to do it next time.
Stracciatella Gelato is a combination of sweet cream, vanilla beans and single origin Dark Chocolate flecks from fine flavour Cacao. It was a good flavour and I like those dark chocolate flakes.
Summer Strawberry Gelato is very fresh and you will not get that artificial taste like other ice creams out there. This flavour is definitely a winner.
Overall, it was a great day to get a sweet treat from them before heading back home to Vancouver.
