Primal Eats Vancouver: Chocolate Arts Cafe

chocolate arts gluten-free ice cream sandwich

I’ve been meaning to try Chocolate Arts for a while, but I never seem to be in the area – it’s a nice stop to make if you’re heading over to Granville Island.

They have a large selection of bulk chocolate, with cacao percentages ranging from 29% to 100%. Several of the chocolates are single origin. The cool thing is that there’s a self-serve sample area set up so that you can try as many as you’d like.

They also have a variety of flavoured bars. I bought the curry, which I liked (although I preferred the one from Theo, which actually had the curry incorporated into the chocolate, resulting in a much more intense curry flavour).

Chocolate Arts has an impressive selection of chocolates. I bought a small box. My favourites were the kalamansi truffle and the framboise. I was impressed by the quality of the chocolates – they weren’t overly sweet, and the flavours were strong. The chocolates all tasted very fresh. They also sell drinking chocolates, which I did not sample.

But perhaps the most exciting purchase for me was the gluten-free ice cream sandwich. It’s chocolate ice cream sandwiched between their flourless chocolate cookies. Only the chocolate flavour was gluten-free, but there were several other non gluten-free options to choose from. The ice cream sandwich was very tasty and of course, nice and chocolatey.

Overall, I was quite happy with my visit to Chocolate Arts. I’ll definitely be back for an ice cream sandwich, and some chocolates as well.
