Unique (and not just truffle) suggestions for good chocolate.

I know about Soma, Leonidas, Sitting Around Eating Bon Bons, Schmidt chocolates, Nauhaus, and The Chocolateria. Kakayo Chocolate company is out of business.

I'm looking for something I haven't tried that has combos of different creams, nuts, fruit, and of course truffles are also fine. I know there are tons of chocolate shops in Toronto but I've tried many (names escape me) that have just been meh.

I actually posted a question like this a couple years back but I'm having problems locating the post and was hoping for an update. Preferable also if they will deliver.

  1. Have you tried Odile Chocolates on Dundas West in Toronto? Mostly truffles, but unique and tasty! My favs are the tequila/lime/chipotle and cognac/ginger. They also have fillings like wild mushroom and sake.

    1. Was this the thread you were thinking of?

        I actually started the post I was looking for. Maybe it was removed. I did look at this one and got a few ideas.

      2. There's a lady out of Burlington who makes truffles. They are really amazing and they are HUGE!! She calls herself The Little Truffle Maker, but she ships to Toronto.

        Her flavours aren't as interesting as Soma, but the flavour itself is excellent and its a great price (they're almost the size of golf balls!). PLus you're supporting an independent small business!

          I tried to find a contact # number or email but it wasn't obvious. Ideas on contacting?

          1. re: Ediblethoughts

            looks like she has a blog site and a website.
            try this: http://thelittletrufflemaker.bigcarte...

            contact info's on the bottom.

              Thanks.

              Site is very busy--I missed that part.

        2. Last time I was at About Cheese they had a Blue Cheese Truffle that was deelish! It was also the size of my fist so you really only needed one.

          1. have you tried Ambiance on Queen east of Broadview? I love these; they're handcrafted on site in small batches. The quality is excellent. I wouldn't say there are overly "unique" flavours, but everything they do is done very well. I especially like the salted caramel, lemon mint and the almond ginger.

            1. Not sure they're still afloat but try:

              1. re: Kagemusha

                They are - I was just looking at them yesterday, but didn't have time to go in. Do you recommend it?

                1. re: Kagemusha

                  I know Stubbe. I actually prefer their cakes. The plain chocolate is decent but when I've tried the others, nothing has grabbed me.

                  1. re: Ediblethoughts

                    My son just brought me some amazing chocolate from Montreal, place is called
                    Suite 88 Chocolatier....they have a website, perhaps you could call them to see if they will deliver 'private' orders, the site says 'corporate gifts'......He brought an assortment of Truffles which were great but best by far were the 'white chocolate pralines'...It's almost worth the drive (well maybe not in the winter??). Have a look at the site.......

                    1. re: pearlD

                      We had some from a place called Cocoa Mosaic that were like works of art. Check out their website.

                      1. re: millygirl

                        Thanks. Does this place have a store? (The chocolates look like those in a shop in Yorkville.)

                        1. re: Ediblethoughts

                          I don't believe they do. Do you know the name of the place in Yorkville?
                          Are they any good?

                          1. re: millygirl

                            I tried a couple chocolates there a year or two ago. They were super, duper expensive. I'm pretty cost-oblivious most of the time when it comes to chocolate but somehow I noticed this cost. So while they were probably good, it didn't seem THAT good. I can't recall the name of the place...

                2. I have to say, I absolutely love Le Feuvre's. http://www.lefeuvres.com/

                  Maybe not the most unusual, but the best in my opinion.
