Sending chocolates to someone in Ottawa
- LulusMom Feb 19, 2012 03:45 AM
Hi, some friends in Ottawa did me a big favor, and I'd like to surprise them with some chocolates. I live in the US and it seems that Godiva won't ship from here. Does anyone have any suggestions of great chocolates I could send? Maybe a Canadian website I can order them from? Many thanks in advance.
Thanks so much everyone. I'm sure all of this info is going to come in handy. I did end up calling Godiva this morning (their website says "we don't ship to Canada. See the links below to see where we ship" and then there are no links, so I figured I had a reasonable excuse for bothering them). They told me to do just what foodyDudey has suggested - get in touch with the one of their boutiques in Ottawa. So I'll try that first, and if that doesn't work, start trying the other options. I very much appreciate the help and will be sure to tell my Canadian husband that despite his best efforts (kidding!) Canadians really are the most helpful people around.
LulusMom if it is not too late I can recommend Koko chocolates. I am almost certain they will deliver since they don't have a storefront operation yet. Their chocolates are however available in many stores in Ottawa. Here is their website: http://www.kokochocolates.ca/ I have tried their chocolates and can confirm they are absolutely delicious.
I would also give a thumbs up to Truffle Treasures.
I can also recommend Olivia Chocolates: http://www.oliviachocolatiers.com/ I have also tried their chocolates and they are excellent.
And one last place I would recommend is Miss Chocolat. They are on the Quebec side of the river but they might be able to help. Here is their website: http://www.misschocolat.com/
If I think of anywhere else I will keep you posted.
Good luck with your search!
If not too late....try two places....
They are in Montreal, I received some as a gift and they were incredible...they do have a website...I had 'truffles' and praline-type things...amazing...
I also go to Wakefield, Quebec frequently and shop at La Confiserie, they also have chocolate...IMO they have the BEST fudge of anywhere in Canada or the U.S. that I have ever had ( I have not had their Chocolates) ! I order ...from them and they ship to me in Toronto..., no problem at all....
Here's their website....... www.LaConfiserie.ca
I sent chocolates from Jubilee Chocolates in Pennsylvania a few years ago, and my friends loved it! They live in Toronto. The company is very ethical (they used mint grown at a local school), and the chocolates come in all kinds of flavours. It also comes in a lovely wooden box that friends liked almost as much as the chocolates themselves. Here's the link: www.johnandkiras.com
Hi Everyone, and thanks again for all the help. I have emailed koko chocolates but haven't heard back yet. The website says that they can deliver, but you have to email them and then they get back to you with a quote. Husband home with a cold, daughter had the day off school and a playdate here at home yesterday, so I didn't get a chance to do more than send that email, but I'll keep you informed. Again, I'm so grateful for all the help.
