Retail Therapy: Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut
If you’re a smitten kitten this Valentine’s Day, Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut (847 17th Ave S.W.) will help you show your love in the sweetest of ways. The Callebaut family began making chocolate in Belgium in 1911, but YYC’s notorious chocolate maker travelled across Canada in the ‘80s and settled happily in the mountains.
Based in Calgary, this award-winning confectionary takes no short cuts when making their exquisite chocolates. Cococo has three Master Chocolatiers on their team and a very talented and dedicated factory staff. This group supplies eleven stores in Calgary, and 30 across the country. All products are handcrafted right here in Calgary, then shipped across Canada, the United Sates and Japan. Cococo is committed to using only cocoa that has been certified sustainable by Rainforest Alliance™, and that support West Africa.
With 48 specialty chocolates to choose from, and additional seasonal treats, at Bernard Callebaut life is just like a box of chocolates. Pop a pick from the Cococo Collection and sip on the ice wine truffle, with dark ganache, ice wine, brandy and cassis or savour something dark and classic, like a sea salt caramel with fleur de sel to finish. For your sweetheart, a bouquet of milk chocolate roses will be sure to spell love.
Truffles, and chocolates and sweet pink lollipops — be mine this Valentine’s!
