Ever since I was a kid, we had one Christmas tradition that always stood out to me the most. In everyone’s stocking we always get our Initial in chocolate.
I always look forward to my chocolate B as it is the BEST TASTING CHOCOLATE EVER. Yes, those words needed to be capitalized for emphasis, the chocolate is just that good!
So where does this delicious chocolate come from you ask? Marshville chocolates, in Wainfleet Ontario. Wainfleet is in Southern Ontario, sort of close to where I grew up. The store is actually so tiny, (even though it is technically the factory) and when more than three people are in the store it feels crowded.
All chocolates are made in house, and displayed beautifully around the store. I noticed this year that through a small window I could watch some of the chocolates being made.
I look forward to going to Marshville every year to pick a special treat. This year I had a caramel stick covered in chocolate. YUM!
It is such a fun tradition, heading to Marshville Chocolates every year, and as long as I’m in Southern Ontario I know it is a tradition that I will always uphold.
What Christmas traditions do you have?
