Calling for Chocoholics!

Chocolate Covered Carrots

From October 15 to November 10, 2010, there is a West Coast Chocolate Festival!

Vancouver is known for the good food, especially the festivals that showcase different restaurants or feature a certain kind of food.  In this case, we have the West Coast Chocolate Festival that as the name implies, is solely focused on chocolate!

If you are new to the city, what better way to familiarize yourself by sampling an eclectic and exotic selection of chocolate imported from around the world?

Kick-Starting the Festival

“Panache” kick starts the festival on October 15, taking place in a breath-taking, revolving event space.  Imagine sitting atop most of the city, while indulging in an assortment of rich, luscious chocolate melting onto your tongue.

Chocolate & Tea

For true chocolate lovers, you must want to taste chocolate in all its forms.  Why not try drinking chocolate?

There are chocolate tea menus featuring different kinds of chocolate – hazelnut, dark, mocha.

You might even want to follow the tea with a pairing of chocolate curry chicken sandwich.

Charlie’s Chocolate Factory

Ever watched the movie titled “Charlie’s Chocolate Factory”? If you want to tour the whole production of chocolate, from how it’s made to the final product, you can go on site to witness and sample the creation of this delectable treat.

Chocolate & Movement

To combat the accumulation of calories, there is the very unique pairing of chocolate and movement.

For example, you can partake in a Chocolate Yoga event or a Chocolate Meditation.  What these activities teach you is the enjoyment of chocolate in a mindful state, enjoying every morsel with intent.

I’m sure this month of chocolate featured events will leave you falling in love with Vancouver!
