While Woopak has been writing about Christmas & Santa, I've been wallowing up on Soma Chocolate, specifically, tumbled almonds in dark Peruvian chocolate & tumbled toasted corn in Costa Rican milk chocolate right before Christmas! How exotic can that be, right? Well, exotic they may be but fattening they certainly are. I can see myself putting on weight if I continue to munch on them. Oh, they are certainly the best chocolate I've had since I can remember.

Luckily for me (gotta watch that figure of ours, gals) Soma Chocolate is only available in Toronto and after just getting a 100 g packet of each flavor (for sampling as I didn't know they were that awesome!), I've left the city for good! If I were to extend my stay, I'd have had expanded my waist! 

So, a little background about this chocolate maker tucked away in the Distillery District with some quaint gift and art shops in the neighborhood. The shop is also where the factory is. It's a cosy corner with a tiny dining area for those who are dying for a cup of hot coffee or chocolate in the chilly winterly days of Toronto. It's a place where you worship chocolate. Soma Chocolatemaker is one of a few artisan chocalatemakers in North America making their chocolate directly from cocoa beans which are imported from many Central American countries like Dominican Republic, Panama & Costa Rica. Soma also serves Mayan Hot Chocolate & A la Taza at its store.



For my short stay at the Soma Chocolate, I was infused with the chocolate culture and welcome its cozy and warm feel. It was a Saturday afternoon when we visited and the place was pack! It's certainly popular with Torontonians & visitors alike. I especially love its collection of chocolate tumbled nuts & toasted corn. What a great surprise to find such elixirs in this tiny outlet. Those chocolates are marvelous & heavenly so much so I feel fairy godmother has arrived early this Christmas! YUM!!!




Oh, before I forget, Soma Chocolate also serves its own gelato!
