Desperately seeking Ghirardelli chocolate!

sun lover Dec 5, 2010 08:03 AM

Hi! Has anyone seen Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate with RASPBERRY squares anywhere in the Lower Mainland or Victoria? (If you haven't tried them, they are terrific.)

Husband is passionate about chocolate (pref. dark) with raspberry, so I'm doing a fun stocking with every variety I can find with raspberry. If you know of the Ghirardelli, or can suggest other good quality ones, I would appreciate hearing where to buy.

Many thanks

    Amazon has them. Not as fun as the local hunt, I know...

      I believe I saw them at Trader Joe's right across the border in Bellingham recently. But be sure to call before heading down!

      But if you want to move away from the pre-packaged commercial stuff a bit and try some nice local ones, you may try Chocolaterie de la Nouvelle France: http://chocolaterienouvellefrance.ca/

      Her truffles are amazing.

        You've probably already called/been to Xoxolat on Burrard, right?

          Speaking of Xoxolat, was just in there and they had these great (pricey) bars fom Austria with 90 flavours!!

          I bought some. Let's see, Pink grapefruit, Acai jelly, thyme to name a few Raspberry too. What a fabulous place!

            Are you talking about the Zotter bars? I haven't had one in ages, but I always used to really enjoy the Bacon Bits flavour with pork rind.

        There is a new lindt chocolate outlet shop in New Westminster in the parking lot with Walmart and they have a ghiradelli section in the store, I think I saw them there.
