The name says it all. For 18 successful years, chocolatiers Gerry and Krista Byers and their team have been hand-crafting decadent delights.
Their shop is stuffed with chocolate truffles–plus more than 12 flavours of fresh fudge, peanut brittle, almond buttercrunch, homemade marshmallow dipped in Belgian chocolate, mint smoothies, almond and cranberry bark, gourmet flavoured swirl barks, chocolate covered pretzels... whew! You get the picture. And they’re all lovingly created on site.
What started out as a small retail operation born from a desire to work together, has become a year-round destination that many travel from afar to visit. “We often hear our customers say it’s the best chocolate they’ve ever tasted,” Krista says with pride. Their success is due in part to the high-quality imported Belgian chocolate they start with, and to their pure creativity in finding new ways of looking at chocolate. But the biggest factor is the love that goes into the detail that makes every chocolate a first-time, delectable experience.
There’s no doubt these chocolatiers have lots of love. Over several years, Krista and Gerry have adopted five Haitian children, and established in-store programs for sending support to the orphanage where they once resided. They’ve taught a family in Port au Prince how to sew, providing them with a skill for a sustainable income. And their sister store, I Love That Gift! showcasing gifts and home décor, features the aprons this Haitian family has made. No wonder that “love” figures so prominently in everything they do.
