Vosges Chocolate?

Does anyone know where I can get Vosges Chocolate bars in Toronto? I really want to try a few of there more exotic flavours. Bacon and chocolate=yum.

  1. I haven't seen it in Toronto, but you can get it at the Wegman's in and around Buffalo. That's where I get mine...

    1. sorry I can't be helpful but wanted to chime in...incredible test for a bar chcolate and love all the detailed instructions about how to get the full taste experience

      1. I was drooling uncontrollably over the website until I read their FAQ and saw this: "To ship to Canada via International Ground the minimum shipping cost is $32" (??!!??)

        Instant heartburn. I certainly haven't seen these goodies anywhere in Toronto - given that their ice cream retailers are all located south of the border and their ridiculous shipping costs, I'm going to guess they're strictly US right now.

        The closest match I can think of offhand that IS available here at reasonable cost is Dagoba chocolate. I've found their bars in a few specialty shops (my sources are Noah's Natural Foods at Yonge and Charles, and The Mercantile at College and Shaw) The lavender and blueberry bar is to die for, as is their Chocolatl with hot peppers and spices.

        There are also some great exotic flavours at Soma in the Distillery - a little box with olive oil, aged balsamic, mayan spice and orange marzipan truffles is a must whenever I'm there.

          Yes, I've always wanted to order some Vosges chocolate, but the price of shipping is just too much! I would love to try the Black Pearl chocolate, but haven't heard of anything comparable.
          For the original poster, I know that Zotter also sells a bacon chocolate bar. Here is their website: http://www.zotter.at/chocolate-galler...
          But I'm not sure if shipping would be any better, as I had some bars brought back from Germany by a friend.

          1. re: adriennec

            I went on both websites...and man oh man...I gotta get some of those chocolates.
            WOW...talk about bringing the world of chocolate to a new level.

        2. Holt Renfrew carried them a few years ago - not sure if they still do. We had the curry and the wasabi bars. Didn't wow me for the price - the flavours were great but the chocolate itself was waxy.

            FYI...I just got back from a run to Buffalo. The Wegman's that I went to had 3 types of the Vosges bars at $4.99 US each, cheaper than buying then direct from Vosges.

              Don't keep us in suspense! Which ones did you get, and how are they??

              1. re: idnas

                I got 2 of the Barcelonas (milk chocolate, hickory-roasted almonds, grey sea salt), which to my taste are really nice--I like the sweet-salty combination. I didn't try either of the others (one with goji berries, one with chilies) because I also bought a pile of Scharffen Berger bars and I thought that I needed to show some self-control...

                1. re: foodie_expat

                  I'll definitely put a Barcelona on my shopping list next time I go to Buffalo.

                  1. re: idnas

                    Add a red fire and a oaxaca to your list if you like spicy chocolate. Those are addictive. The naga is delicious as well. The chocolate and curry flavours blend surprisingly well.

                    1. re: TorontoJo

                      I picked up an oaxaca in NYC this week. You're right. Definitely addictive. Sadly that's the only kind that store had and I didn't have time to shop around. Glad to see Food Tourist's post about Boncheff, or else I'd likely be heading to Whole Foods and paying through the nose for my next fix!

          2. Found them at Whole Foods. Looked like at least 10 varieties. $13.99 a bar!

              Thanks! I'm so there tomorrow!

              Also agree that the Dagoba Lavender bar is heavenly.

              1. re: h2o

                That is highway robbery!!! $4.99 a bar at Wegmans' in Buffalo. Whole Paycheck strikes again...

                1. re: foodie_expat

                  wow, why so expensive (the over $14/bar)? We found them at a small, small wine shop near our home in Western NC and they are $7.99 per bar.

                  1. re: leahinsc

                    That price is RIDICULOUS !!! I bought some in the Vosges store in Las Vegas and they were 7 dollars a bar which I think is a fairly standard price in the states.

                    The new bacon one is pretty good btw.
