This Valentine's week's eco-delicacy.
Choklat is a local chocolate maker and specialty truffle shoppe. Although, they do have to import their rare coco beans from South America, they are one of two Canadian chocolatiers that actually make their own chocolate from the beans. They're essentially a micro-refinery for coco products! Their Choklat is the best I've ever tasted, and thanks to Valentine's Day and my boyfriend I have an entire box of customized truffles to enjoy. It also has a large stake in community involvement for such a small business; with 50% of the purchase price of each box of 10 truffles going to Calgary's grassroots and non profit organizations.
Visit the small store in Inglewood S.E. Calgary, or their website.
Mother nature's best friend, Choklat.
