All of our chocolates have been manufactured in Vancouver, British Columbia, since 1981. Our factory, located in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, supplies our retail stores, clients, and many fine retailers and hotels across Canada.
We do not offer factory tour but we invite you to visit our store located in the same address on 88 East 7th Avenue, Vancouver, BC V5T 1M2. Who knows, you might even be able to meet Daniel himself!
Daniel uses only pure natural ingredients! Our chocolates but also our whipping cream, butter, herbs and spices used for our fillings are all-natural. We are proud not to use any preservative, artificial colourings and flavours, hydrogenated, vegetable, and tropical fats.
We have also worked hard on reducing the amount of sugar in our chocolate by adding more cocoa mass to it. The result is a perfectly balanced chocolate – nor too bitter, nor too sweet – that you will love and love again
In general, chocolates do not like humidity, direct sunlight or heat. It is best to store your chocolates in a dry, dark and cool place.
Our chocolates will stay fresh-tasting for up to 8 weeks from the time of purchase. Make sure to keep them in a cool, dry and dark place. For plain solid chocolates, they can last for up to a year if stored in good home kitchen conditions.
We do not use wheat ingredients except in chocolates with obvious wheat products like our chocolate-covered pretzels. Note that we do not use these types of products in our assorted chocolate boxes.
Just a few of our products are dairy-free; our solid dark chocolate, cherry in Kirsh, chocolate-covered ginger and orange peels.
Some of our chocolates contain nuts. It is the case for:
- All the products using praline (includes the entire hedgehog collection)
- All the products using peanut butter
- All products with obvious nut content (like our pecan caramel or any nuts mix)
