If you come here often enough, you’ve probably noticed that it’s been an interesting month around Food, Je t’Aimée, with a number of exciting opportunities coming my way, and as a result, lots of different content!
This post is no exception!
Last week, myself and Kathy Jollimore of Eat Halifax! (and soon of The Record Shop) were invited down to Chocolates by Design (1360 Lower Water Street) to check out their wares. If you haven’t yet visited this chocolate-lovers haven, my goodness you’re in for a treat when you do! Together, Kathy and I sampled a number of beautiful, individually wrapped chocolates, baking chocolates, and a steaming, decadent mug of milk hot chocolate.

Chocolates by Design use and import a number of premium and pure source chocolates, including Belgian Belcolade. Omar has wholesale rates, too, for those who need top notch chocolate in bulk.
What’s more is that they are one of the few coffee shops in town that stay open late. Really late! Their hours are Monday through Thusday, 7am-11pm, Friday and Saturday, 7am-12am, and Sunday 8:30am-10:30pm.

I absolutely loved the cupcake wrappers they have for sale (perfect for Muffin Monday!), and can’t wait to get my hands on some. You can see what they actually look like when wrapped around a cupcake, along with their other gift arrangements and products, by visiting their online shop.
Chocolates by Design is an excellent and most welcome addition to our downtown core!
