Profile Last Updated: February 06, 2008
Chocolate Addict is a store dedicated to making sweet consumption as fun as possible. It makes truffles, molded chocolates, chocolate covered snacks, novelty candies and customizable gift baskets. Chocolate pizzas, wasabi-flavoured truffles, lavender, basil chili and jasmine, and sensual novelties like chocolate body frosting and chocolate massage oil are some of the store’s novel creations.
Chocolate Addict is the place to find a chocolate mold of golf clubs with accompanying balls, chocolate fortune cookies with actual fortunes tucked inside, and every chocolate letter in the alphabet. Chunks flavoured with mint, vanilla, maple, caramel and cookies ‘n’ cream are made fresh each day. Chocolate flower bouquets, chocolate cigars and chocolate and fruit flavoured bandages are among the gifts designed for every conceivable special occasion. There’s also an adults section with provocative shapes that make an amorous statement.
Lust For Chocolate
With its large cartoonish façade featuring Groucho Marx glasses and nose, Chocolate Addict is one of the most prominent stores in Kensington Market. It invites shoppers to stop in for an irreverent indulgence. The area might be dominated by old-school meat, fish and produce markets, but this store reminds people that cocoa confections are a crucial part of an endorphin-releasing diet.
