Please see the posting on Sharon at Optimistically Cautious, a local Edmonton blogger. She wrote: “The white chocolate lime was such an unusual combination, but worked, melding the richness of the high cocoa butter content with bites of citrus tang. Chocophilia Hot (with cayanne pepper) snuck up on me, needing a few seconds before releasing its heat in the back of my throat.” She also noted that: “I much preferred the Mocha Bean � the crunchy additive of fresh Transcend Coffee-roasted beans was delightful, and of course, the tried and true combination of coffee and chocolate was a winner.”
Thanks to everyone who came to our opening party! Here is a short video of the event to give you a taste of what went on!
We were reviewed in VUE magazine today by reporter Jan Hostyn. To quote:
[Kerstin's Chocolates'] Chocophilia gourmet chocolates are small bars with a bit of a twist. I was lucky enough to enjoy a sample at the Italian Centre one day and can see how the Chocophilia Pumpkin Pie - a milk chocolate bar covered with graham cracker bits and flavoured with nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon - can become habit-forming.

As of today, we are opening our own retail location in Downtown Edmonton. It is called “The Cocoa Room” and it is located at 10139 112th St, just north of Jasper Ave. We have more info up on the web site here.
Hope to see you there!
