A little bit of that Hot Rod Rumble… A little bit of that Ice Cream Jingle.
Introducing the Chocolate Tofino Hot Rod.
It’s a 1961 Ford Econoline Van Pickup that has spent a good amount of time between Vancouver and the Island. We’re not entirely sure of it’s origin, but 53 years is enough time to have seen some things. From now on it’s making memories in Tofino delivering Chocolate and Homemade Gelato.
You’ll see it on Saturday Market Days downtown Tofino, assisting the Vintage Gelato Cart to the Village Green.
For those out there that know vehicles, it’s got a 302 V8, 3 Speed Automatic from a 1973 Ford Maverick. Flat Black Paint, hand painted Pin-striping, Cragar Mags and glass-packed Thrush Mufflers.
“Every Chocolate Shop needs a Hot Rod.” – Cam
We’ve recently had some special Chocolate Tofino Stainless Steel Gelato Pints made up! They hold 16oz of our fresh homemade Gelato and keep it cool and ready to share during your adventure. Climb a mountain or enjoy a sunset boat ride and keep a nice Pint of Gelato waiting for you in your bag.
The Picnic Pints are a Stainless Steel double-walled container with a bowl on top for sharing. When we personally tested these, we got almost 5 hours out of it.
• Comes full of your favorite flavor of our Homemade Gelato (or a Giftcard for later)
• Keeps your Gelato cold for over 4 Hours
• Future Picnic Pint refills cost $1.00 less than regular Pints
Pick one up before you hit the trails or grab one as a gift.
Available In-store or Online

Inspired by our time in Central America, our new La Maya truffle captures the rich and complex flavors that the ancient Mayans perfected.
“Lots of people like spiced chocolate, however they’ve only eaten it in a solid bar with chili flakes or essential oils. I wanted to create a Chili Truffle that had flavor and depth that simply isn’t achievable in a solid bar. The focus for me, wasn’t on the heat but rather the well of dark flavors from the Ancient Mayan World. Each truffle is a fusion of 3 types of Dark Chocolate plus Chipotle, Vanilla, Cinnamon and includes fresh Arbol Chilis that I grew myself. This truffle is truly a gem to make, I just have to remember not to rub my eyes after.” – Cam

Being in the Chocolate Shop, we talk a lot about chocolate. Guests often bring us flavor ideas, the latest article they’ve read or on-topic movie suggestions. One recent film title is the French picture, Romantics Anonymous. It made us smile and was a joy to watch from start to finish. If you’re looking to cozy up with some frothy hot chocolate and watch a delightful movie, Romantics Anonymous is an evening well spent.
Romantics Anonymous tells the story of Angélique, a gifted chocolate-maker whose uncontrollable shyness prevents her from acknowledging her talents. Struggling chocolatier Jean-René, who also suffers from a similar case of awkward bashfulness that threatens to drown his company, hires Angélique as his new sales associate. Realizing she’s attracted to her boss, Angélique decides to anonymously develop a new line of chocolates to save the company. With the future of the business hanging in the balance, Angélique and Jean-René must overcome their limitations and confess their sweet affections for one another in this delectable comedy. © Tribeca Film
