Saw this product on Unwrapped last night and I'd like to try it. Does anyone know where it can be found in Toronto?

    Yes! You can find it at Le Gourmand on Spadina north of Richmond. They have it for sale in canisters, and you can also order about 5 or 6 different varieties from the coffee and baked goods counter. Try the Extreme Dark... it's awesome.

    I should also mention that Le Gourmand is just generally good, with great sandwiches, salads, breakfasts and coffee, as well as a huge variety of gourmet groceries and premade frozen stuff. Check it out!

          Where can you find this stuff in Montreal? Any ideas? My sister in law and I are dying to try it after seeing on food network last night. Is the chocolate mint any good?

            Went to Le Gourmand today. The price is $20/canister but they didn't have the flavour I wanted (they had Dulce Leche, White Chocolate and Chocolate Mocha...I want Milk or Dark Chocolate). Any other places I can try looking?

              Sorry to mislead you baby tran... they definitely had additional flavours before, but I guess they must have sold out. The ones you mentioned wouldn't have been my choice, either. :)

              I've never seen it anywhere else, unfortunately. Hope you didn't go too far out of your way!

              I was just at Le Gourmand and there is one cannister of Triple Chocolate left for some lucky person. Unless it was mismarked, the Triple Chocolate is $30 while the others are $20. Is this possible? How many servings are in a cannister?

                Hi Baby Tran,
                sorry about running out of retail stock but with the Christmas season and gift baskets we outsold the product. We still have plenty of Bulk Shokinag drinking chocolate that we prepare from out menu. I will be restocking the retail canisters within the next 2 weeks. The product is excellent and comes from Germany and therefore becomes even more expensive due to shipping. The triple Chocolate is in fact more expensive due to a higher coco content. I hope this helps. If you would like you can allways call ahead to find out if we have what you're looking for. 416-504-4494.

                  I live in Texas and it's available at the gourmet type grocery stores.

                  I am working on my first cannister of it. It's like no other hot chocolate you have ever tasted. It's quite good. However, fat content is pretty high.
