This is a genius idea. A chocolate-covered genius idea.
Hot chocolate love at Mink.
Billing itself as “7 Chocolatiers, 30 Days, 50+ Crazy Flavours” the 1st Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival is wrapping up today, so if you have yet to do so the next few hours may be your last chance to wrap yourself in some truly tasty beverages (or gelato!). If the idea of a hot chocolate crawl throughout the city isn’t motivation enough, it might be worth knowing that the participating establishments in the month-long event are donating a portion of their sales towards charities of their choosing (is the caloric impact of chocolate negated when it’s in the name of charity?).
For more information about the event, go to CityFood Magazine.
