WARM UP CUP

Beat the winter blues with the 8th annual Hot Chocolate Festival.

Wow, does the weather suck right now.

There’s not much that can make the grey and rainy days more bearable, but The Hot Chocolate Festival definitely does its best to lighten spirits.

Celebrating its eighth anniversary, the annual event brings together 35 venues serving 75 different flavours and permutations of hot chocolate. From the traditional “Chocolate Chip Mint” at Terra Breads to the hipster-approved vegan smoked chocolate “Campfire” from Cartem’s Donuts (naturally) and from Thomas Haas’ white chocolate Matcha “In the Land of the Rising Sun” to Earnest Ice Cream’s Mexican-inspired “Dulcelicious,” there’s a flavour to suit every palate.

It’s sweet relief.
