I love anything sweet ! Cakes, ice creams, CHOCOLATES (and sweet guys of course! lol). So it’s a mortal sin if i don’t feature some of the sweet shops (pastry, candy, chocolate shops ) i’ve been to. Since they’re too many to mention. I’ll start with the chocolate shop i’ve visited in Vancouver. Thanks to a good friend An An for advising me to walk down South Granville, I’ve seen several cool shops there. Well, she also brought me to another ” to die for” pastry/chocolate shop in North Van ( that deserves another blog).
A chocolate pioneer with a more than a 100 year history, one shouldn’t miss PURDYS ! A canadian owned and family operated business that is in existence since 1907, they have been creating yummy chocolates for a century! You can see them almost everywhere, their 64 stores are all over British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario. Truffles, smoothies, name it , with such a wide selection you’ll go crazy! By the way, I love their purple colored wall surroundings , so perfect for their packaging !
Thanks to their head chocolatier Gary Mitchell, one can say it’s not a luxury to try Purdy’s it’s a necessity! – by JoelF
