In 600 BC the cocoa bean was the ultimate status symbol. People believed the small, fragrant bean would lend its consumers wisdom and power. Over 15 centuries later cocoa, and its refined product chocolate, still holds power over millions of people worldwide. Chocolate connoisseurs look to Belgium for the finest examples, unless, of course, they can find émigré chocolatiers such as Daniel le Chocolat Belge in Vancouver.
A History of Decadence
Since 1981 Daniel le Chocolate Belge has provided chocoholics in Vancouver with the finest Belgian chocolate products: pralines, truffles, dark chocolate bars and ballotins, or oblong boxes filled with an assortment of nibbles. They also have lovely lines of corporate gifts, and party favours for special events like weddings and baby showers. They all come in pretty little boxes designed to impress.
Diversity is Key
At Daniel le Chocolat Belge, the variety of chocolate is huge. A visit to Daniel’s Robson location you can smell and taste the full spectrum of chocolate. From organic, to no sugar-added, to rare vintage, to Grand Cru - there is a bar or ballotin for everyone. Gift sets available include large cocoa bars complete with chisel knife, and a chocolate champagne bottle filled with liqueur-stuffed chocolates. Gift-wrapping is available year-round, as are gift cards.
Note: Try the new Lifestyle Chocolette Collection, where you can cure your craving with a thin piece of chocolate perfectly sized to melt in your mouth, each individually wrapped with paper featuring lifestyle quotes and snapshots.
