Great chocolate!

I'm a dark truffle guy, but the wide assortment is overwhelming and there is something for everyone dark or milk. Hot Chocolates always comes up with fresh seasonal ideas with plenty to choose a real bonus for the Comox Valley.

If you are serious about chocolate, this is your place. Not inexpensive, but worth every penny. We made the "mistake" of sending these amazing sweets to family for Christmas, now they remind us every single year: "don't forget the chocolates!" The ice cream is awesome also. The bakery on the oer side of the store has beautiful pastries and cakes,... More

Take it from a long term Choco-holic, Hot Chocolates are purveyors of the finest chocolates available in the province of British Columbia. The Truffels are just the right amount of purity, flavor and freshness, A Class Act. Thank you and by the way they ship and their website is also very well done

Some of the best chocolates that I have ever had. The price is high, but we get what we pay for and the chocolates are definitely worth it. They have some wonderful samples of various vinegar and oils, great ice cream and of course, fantastic chocolates !

Excellent quality chocolate in one section of shop - on the other side top qualit and variety of breads are available. Great place to stop when out shopping on 5th Street for a hot chocolate or latte topped off with a yummy scone or coffee cake!

The chocolates are great, the tea wonderful but I like the olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting area the best. Dozens of different infusions and flavours to try with bread, even some walnut oil. Great for gift boxes!:)

The ice creams come in many flavours and are extremely flavoursome. The chocolates certainly looked very appealing.
