5 Canadian chocolatiers making bitter & sweet magic

Newfoundland Chocolate Company

St. John’s, Newfoundland and various other locations in Canada

Their unique back story is worth reading. Husband and wife team, Brent and Christina, met and bonded over clay. Crafting clay. They met in pottery class, bonded over their love of making things with their hands and, eventually, got married and (several interesting twists of fate) later started their chocolate company. Their goal was to celebrate the culture, beauty and charm of Newfoundland with delicious, artisan-crafted chocolate. And they succeeded.

Each box of chocolate they make proudly displays iconic scenes of Newfoundland; written with the chocolate descriptions is a map of Newfoundland and Labrador. The flavour combinations also embrace their origin story. Locally inspired flavours, like Lukey’s Boat (white chocolate, Newfoundland blueberries, raspberries and cranberries) and Gros Morne (dark chocolate, whipped partridgeberry), are combined by hand to honour Newfoundland landmarks and historical moments.

You can purchase their products at their retail store in Newfoundland or at a few other chocolateries in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia; retailers and grocery stores across Canada also carry their products, though you’ll have to check their website to know if there’s a store near you. You can also buy their products online; shipping fee is a standard $18.
