North of the Border Hot Chocolate Festival

In January, we found out that Vancouver, British Columbia, holds a Hot Chocolate Festival. This is something we had to experience, so we ventured north for a fun weekend of hot chocolate sampling. Here is what we discovered:

Our first stop was at Cocoa Nymph in the Kitsialano District. We ordered Hera’s Habit, and found it be to be a smooth milk chocolate explosion with a the wonderful taste of the malted milk balls. We also tried the Bachus’ Dream. It had a light chocolate flavor, and you could feel the consistency of the wine reduction compote. It was not super sweet.
