Opened their first store in Whistler village back in 1988, and now they have 55 store across Canada. They have a wide selection of chocolate, ice cream, and crazy caramel apples.
If you are looking for chocolate for Easter or any other occasion, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is the place to be. They have something for everyone...even your puppy. (They have a small doggie section). There is one major attraction in their store that draws attention - their demonstration of the products they sell. Watching them dipping chocolate covered strawberries or making their chocolate covered apples will make anybody's mouth water. Rocky Mountain Chocolate is one of our favourite places to shop for treats. My favourite is their maple and oreo fudge and my husband always gets their smooth milk chocolate mint squares. This month Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory has release their Easter chocolate line and they sent a box a few
I know I am not suppose to eat Easter chocolate until Easter but for the sake of this blog posting most of the chocolate has to be eaten
If you are looking for something traditional, they have Bunny Junior (5.9oz, $7.99) and Flopsy Bunny Suckers (2.5oz, $4.49). I know every age would love this. Growing up, this is usually what I would receive for Easter. This was one of the items my daughter first dived into.
If you are looking for something more interesting and taste divine is the Small Foil Cream Eggs (0.06 lb, $2.99each). They come in four different flavours - Chocolate, Raspberry, Coconut, and Peanut Butter. They are not your usual "creme eggs". They are much better than the ones you know.
If you are looking for something new and cute, they have the White and Milk Mini Bunny Bombs ($2.99 each, New item this year). they are new products for this year and I have to say this is a must try product. At first they were just too cute to be eaten. Who was I kidding. I immediately took one bite and I couldn't believe how good they taste. The middle has a soft fudge texture that I could eat all day, every day. I wish they could make a bigger size for me. If they made it in the size of a small cake, I would be in chocolate heaven. I would advise to purchase a few more than one. I highly doubt they would last long in their Easter basket.
If you are looking for something interesting - try their Orange Non Pareil Eggs (8oz, $8.99). They are Orange soft jelly candies coated with candy sprinkles. These are my daughter's favourite because they taste amazing. Sweet soft and crunchy what more can the girl ask for.
If you are looking for something nutty try their Dark Chocolate Caramels & Cappuccino Almonds (7oz, $8.99). They are a nice combo when I pop them in my mouth. This is by far the best chocolate covered almond I have ever had.
If your are looking for something very unique and fun, try their Chocolate Nest with Eggs (4oz, $4.99). This is also another cute product they are selling. The nest has a crunchy chocolate texture because of the coconut and I finished this one in record time. Another one, I will have to repurchase...it was that good. I wonder if they would make a bigger nest just for me....
The last but not least, if you are looking for a fun and original chocolate, try their Treasure Egg with Smarties *includes their crack and win contest* (12oz hollow egg with 2oz of Smarties, $14.99). I had the hardest time cracking it open but if I had a knife, it would have been alot easier. I can't believe how thick the shell is compared to the other hollow eggs I had before. Inside each egg everyone has a chance to win a $10 to $100 gift card to Rocky Mountain. While I was chiseling the egg I was praying there might be a gift card but it was only had smarties...bummer. Maybe you might have better luck than I did.
The final vote is that my family and I absolutely enjoyed every chocolate I was sent. Since my family and I devoured them in record time I will have to go and purchase some more chocolate for Easter. Rocky Mountain chocolate factory will not disappoint you and you will not come out empty handed when you go into their store.
The infamous Rocky Mountian Chocolate Factory would like to offer one of my lucky, lucky reader a $50 gift card. That is alot of chocolatey goodness you can purchase. It will be chocolate heaven.
