Mexican Chocolate / Mexican Food Retailer

  • t
  • 5

Can anyone tell me where in this beautiful city of Toronto, I can find Mexican chocolate? I've tried Golda's Kitchen in Missisauga and Golda was unable to tell me of any Mexican food retailer in Toronto. I find this hard to believe, considering the wide variety of nationalites we have here. Thanks in advance.

  1. dinahs cupboard in yorkville has mexican chocolate. call first to make sure they have it in stock.
    in the sweet kitchen by regan daley has a great recipe for mexican chocolate sauce.
    i may be wrong but i think most mexican chocolate on the market is poor in quality
    Look for the brand name Ibarra.

    1. I needed to find exactly this last New Years - I managed to find it at actually quite a few places in Kensington Market. I don't know of any places in specific - just look for some of the stores that sell Mexican foodstuffs.

      Good Luck!

        There are 2 spots almost side by side in Kensington Market, on the East side of Augusta, just north of Baldwin... Both carry Mexican Chocolate - and if you hit it right, they both sell fresh made pupusas.

        One of them, Perola's 247 Augusta Ave., also has a a wide variety of dried chiles in bins out front. You can recognized the store by the piles of torillas, cactus, tomatillos, dried corn, etc.

          and the other is the Latin America Emporium at 243 Augusta
