CONTEST: Win two passes to the Toronto Luxury Chocolate Show!

Chocolate, the sweet (and now often savoury) treat that evokes emotions in its eaters. Some say it's better than sex, others tout the health benefits of having a square of dark chocolate daily, while Forest Gump compares it to life itself.

Regardless of your thoughts, if you're interested in the ingredient, you should visit the Toronto Luxury Chocolate Show. Gathering various high end chocolatiers into one marketplace, guests are invited to head over to vendors to ask questions and sample their crafts. There will also be live demonstrations, throughout the day, showcasing ideas on how to jazz up chocolate for the upcoming holiday season - oh I can only imagine how lovely the Rotunda room of the Roy Thomson Hall will smell!

Every year there's a bit more added to the show. Similar to past exhibitions, you can try creating the treat at one of their free chocolate making classes or take on the champs in their chocolate eating competition. If you're like me and love to eat, I can't wait to test out the dishes our city's chefs will be whipping up with the ingredient. Perhaps, I'll even sign up for one of their wine pairing sessions for an extra decadent boost.

However, this year they're offering even more things for chocolate lovers:
  • Partake in chocolate painting classes - kept family friendly of course.
  • Create and customize  your own quarter pound chocolate bar - just imagine how happy the recipient of this gift would be!
  • Support SickKids by building a chocolate bridge.
If you're feeling lucky, head over the the Wonderful Wonka Wheel where you'll get a chance to find one of the Golden Tickets, which grants you a trip to a secret chocolate factory. If only it were like the movie and I could float across a chocolate river and meet an Oompa Loompa.

The best thing is no one leaves empty handed. Included with every admission is a gift bag filled with chocolate products that's valued at the price of the ticket or more. Additionally, each general admission ticket already includes five sample tickets so you always have a chance to try something that isn't complimentary.

If you want to join in for the day of fun, you can head to their website to purchase tickets. Be sure to use the discount code AWCS16 to get a $5 discount off the admission price.
