If you have a sweet tooth, and honestly most of us do, what is your sweet craving? For me, it’s chocolate and Brantford has some delicious options both from local businesses and chains operated by local owners. Next time you need a chocolatey fix, check out one (or all!) of the following:
Le Chocolat du Savoie | 320 Colborne St. W | 519-751-1119
From hand-crafted Belgian chocolates of only the finest ingredients to the delightful fulfilling aromas that linger through the store, Le Chocolat du Savoie offers a wide range of indulgence from the creamy smooth to the rich deepness of milk, white and dark chocolate. Try their white or milk-chocolate dipped licorice, chocolate covered Oreos or JuJubes, barks, and more. You can’t go wrong with one of their boxes of assorted chocolates – prefect for sharing (or not on an especially indulgent day).
