Join us as we pair a select line up of bars with fine scotch and vintage port. We will divulge the secrets to successful chocolate pairing and how to choose your chocolate/spirits matches.

You could get your dad a new tie or some aftershave for Father's Day, but we're betting he'd like a ticket to this event a whole lot more...

Saturday Tasting: Blind Tasting

On this Saturday we will be hosting another Blind Chocolate Tasting! We hosted a blind tasting day earlier this spring and it was a great success. Seems like chocolate fans like to test their taste-buds!

Which chocolate bars will we be tasting? You won't find out until after you've tasted! Perhaps your palate can identify the origin? Chocolate without the distraction of the beautiful wrappings.

Saturday Tasting: Cacao Prieto

We couldn't be happier to announce the long awaited return of Cacao Prieto to The Chocolate Project.

Started by Dan Prieto Preston in an old red brick warehouse in Brooklyn NY about 10 years ago, Cacao Prieto uses beans from the family farm, Coralina Estates, located in the Dominican Republic. All of the cacao, flavouring agents, and even their sugar are organically farmed and produced in the DR. The bars are made in the NY warehouse, which is also a distillery producing spirits from Dominican fruits – including cacao!

Special Event: Carfree #YYJ Day

It's Victoria's Second Annual Car Free #YYJ event! Douglas Street will be pedestrian-only "traffic". The Chocolate Project won't be out on the street (sunshine and chocolate don't mix too well... or rather they melt together), but we will be open at our usual location inside the Victoria Public Market.

We'll be hosting a mini mystery tasting at our shop.

Saturday Tasting: East Van Roasters

East Van Roasters is a non-profit initiative of the PHS Community Services Society.  They provide support, training, and employment benefiting the women residents of the Rainier Hotel and other downtown Eastside housing initiatives through employment making bean-to-bar chocolate and coffee roasting. They've recently opened a second location which serves up the usual treats plus some amazing baking.

This Saturday we will be sharing these three tasty single-origin bars with you: Madagascar, Peru, and Dominican Republic. Come by and get them before they're gone! Last fall we sold out within two weeks.
