I saw a write up in the weekend National Post for the Lestat black garlic chocolates. They were sold out earlier this week but a fresh batch has been delivered to McEwans. The shop carries a wide selection of her chocolates - many with a skull or Hallowe'en esque theme. Gift boxes are available. The staff at the shop were quite accommodating. Laura actually let me know when the batch was to be delivered so I could have a box set aside.

Here is the write up from Toronto Life's 50 Crazy Good things to eat:
Every batch of Laura Slack’s chocolates takes four hours to create. She fills the baubles with decadent centres like dulce de leche or black tea ganache and paints them with edible lustres using fine-tipped brushes. The menacing, bitter skull is filled with salted caramel that’s infused with pungent black garlic, which leaves a strangely pleasant fermented pong on the tongue. $2.50 each. McEwan Foods, 38 Karl Fraser Rd, 416-444-6262.

I know Laura Slack used to be at Nota Bene.
