Leonidas chocolates in Vancouver!

29 Jul

Last summer, one of my favourite Belgian chocolate shops opened its first location in Vancouver, near the Convention Centre! The new store sells chocolates imported from Belgium, including creamy, melt-in-your-mouth truffles and a variety of pralines (my personal fave being a dark chocolate truffle lightly coated in crushed almonds). In Belgium, Leonidas makes delectable chocolates at a terrific price – you get a much better bang for your buck than shops like Godiva, and I think they taste better too. In Vancouver, Leonidas chocolates are a bit of a splurge, and the selection isn’t as enormous as in the Belgian shops. These six chocolates (priced by weight) set me back about $9, but they were very much worth it.

If you ever find yourself in Belgium, you can buy these by the kilogram!
