Finding Fabulous Hot Chocolate in Vancouver

Vancouver’s Best Cups of Hot Chocolate

As Vancouver starts to feel the winter chill, hot cocoa is a perfect way to warm the spirit, indulge is something luxurious, and share a moment. After the initial seasonal egg nogs, I turn to something less cloying, something more earthy and complex.  Cacao has a long history, considered sacred by the Aztec, and still revered for its mysterious nutritional benefits, it’s sure to take away the winter blues. I’m on a quest,… Finding Fabulous Hot Chocolate in Vancouver.

Here’s how the research is going so far (in alphabetical order):

Bella Gelateria – Black Sesame Hot Chocolate

This is a toasted, rich, black sesame flavour in massive cup! It would be a romantic, sweet, and super thing to share with a close friend on a cold Vancouver evening.  Made from Bella Gelateria’s own home made Black Sesame gelato, transports to a winter in Japan.  ($5.25)
