Final Remarks

Let’s start off by saying this month has been a lot of fun and we had an amazing time going to try as many hot chocolates that we can. We have had an awesome time driving around the city trying everyone’s creations. This month we tried a total of 51 different hot chocolates totalling roughly $396.

We had high hopes for a bunch of hot chocolates since the location had an amazing hot chocolate last year, but this year they really disappointed us. We were looking forward to trying certain ones and they really let us down and this was very sad, whereas others really surprised us to no end.

So without further ado, here are my daughter’s and my wife’s top nine hot chocolates for the 2021 YYC Hot Chocolate Fest.

Daughter’s top 9, in no specific order;

  • Jus Fruit : Oreo Cheesecake Hot Chocolate
  • Pixie’s Candy Parlour : Drop It Like It’s Hot
  • Monki Bistro : Cinnamon Toast Crunch Hot Chocolate
  • Black Sheep : Chocolat Chaud Facon Banana Split
  • Monogram : Bergamot Honey Hot Chocolate
  • Kristi : Kentucky Campout (BOOZY)
  • Cravings Market : Cherry Blossom Bliss
  • The Coup : Orange Blossom Bliss
  • Our Daily Brett : Gianni The Chocolate Rocket

Wife’s top 9, in no specific order;

  • Bubblemania : Spicy Ginger Black Tea Hot Chocolate
  • Pixie’s Candy Parlour : Drop It Like It’s Hot
  • Black Sheep : Chocolat Chaud Facon Banana Split
  • Kaffeeklatsch :  Schwartzwalder Schokomilch
  • Kristi : Polar Express
  • Cravings Market : Cherry Blossom Bliss
  • Jus Fruit : Red Velvet Cupcake Hot Chocolate
  • Monogram : Bergamot Honey Hot Chocolate
  • Holy Cannoli : Chocolate Covered Raspberry Hot Chocolate

We had found that there were some really good ones this year that didn’t make our top nine but did deserve a honourable mention because of their flavour or their creativity.

 Honorable Mentions;

  • Bullet Café : Bullet Oil Hot Chocolate
  • Sawa : All Hail Hot Chocolate
  • Velvet Café : White Chocolate Lavender Orange Hot Chocolate
  • Neighbour : When Doves Cry Lavender White Chocolate
  • Café Beano :  Golden Chai Chocolate
  • Calgary Heritage Roasting Co. : Campfire Delight

We could all agree that this year had some outstanding hot chocolates and some that missed the mark. The ones that were outstanding really stood out against the rest and the ones that failed really were disappointing due to flavour, texture, garnishes, whip, or their overall beverage.

We were very pleased to be a part of this year’s YYC Hot Chocolate Fest and we were so happy that we were able to visit as many locations as we could. We really hope you had as much fun as we did trying these hot chocolates and we hope that you may have followed our adventures this past month.

A big thank you to everyone who participated and who bought hot chocolates to help support Meals on Wheels. Thank you to all for helping this wonderful organization.

Here is to next year!

Happy Chocolating!
