Delight Chocolates: brief review

I was hanging about the Junction Arts Festival yesterday and popped by Delight, a new chocolate shop in the area. In fact, it just opened on Thursday I believe.
They make all their products in house, and use organic, fair-trade chocolate. I tasted both their chocolate and ice cream, and was impressed by the quality of each.
I believe they've been selling their products at a few stores in Toronto for some time (e.g. The Big Carrot) but this is their first dedicated store.
I'll definitely be back to try more.
Dundas West (north side) near High Park Ave.
I also tried their chocolates yesterday during the Junction Arts Festival. I had the extra dark truffle and hubby had the vanilla bean. We were both impressed! Good sized chocolates for $1.25 each. We'll be back for sure!
I tried them on Saturday as well. I had the Caramel, Dark Chocolate, Espresso, and Vanilla Bean. I liked them all except the Caramel. It was $10.30 for 8 pieces. Not to mention only a 5 minute walk. I am going back for sure. I didn't notice that there were ice cream so can't comment on that.
As a side note, I saw a sign for a new organic market as well - Beet Organic Market. Not sure when they will open but can't wait. Hopefully I don't have to go to Roncy or BWV for organic anymore.
Delight is good if you're looking for a designer looking chocolate. For a good portion and gorgeous treats you can also try Sitting Around Eating BonBons on the Lakeshore Blvd. West in Etobicoke ... it's right by the Humber College campus and the prices are very good for organic and fair trade chocolate. I'm going there for Christmas gifts for my friends.
