Sweet Times at the Vancouver PNE


Yesterday I gave a chocolate lecture at the
Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) in the Pacific Coliseum. At the end of the show, each attendee got to taste chocolate from Rogers' Chocolates.

The first Rogers' chocolates were made in 1885 by Charles "Candy" Rogers in the back of his grocery shop in Victoria, B.C. Surprisingly little has changed in their Victorian-inspired stores that are teeming with handcrafted chocolates made from "Candy's" original recipes. Rogers' hand-wrapped chocolates, such as their famous Victoria Creams, remain simply irresistible.

The "it's A Candy Nation" exhibit, on display at the coliseum, is a great PNE attraction. If you are in Vancouver, be sure to check it out!
