Stop by this Saturday for the swingin' sounds of Maria Giavedoni (Paola's mum!) and her accompanist, accordion player Joe Suffoletta. Enjoy their renditions of Italian pop songs from the 60s and 70s along with a taste of Slitti, one of Italy's top artisanal chocolate makers.
Join us April 28th for a very special evening at The Candy Bar, when we'll be hosting "A Tasting and a Trio" from 7pm-9pm. Lunar Blooms Trio will be harmonizing and DesBarres will be sharing their hand-crafted bean to bar wares.
Owin, our customer and Dufferin Grove neighbour shared this video of his family making maple syrup out near Hamilton. They show the whole process, from tapping the trees to boiling the runoff into the syrup we know all love.
Join Christine from Cocodoro at The Candy Bar on February 10th and sample bars from Akesson (Great Britain), Francois Pralus (France) and Naive (Lithuania).
Try exotic flavour combinations (porcini and dark chocolate anyone?), traditional pairings, and see how beans from different parts of the world compare. Christine is passionate about her chocolate, and will be happy to talk about the origins of the bars, how the producers handle their beans and come up with their signature flavours!
Talented local designer Corey Moranis has taken her passion for whimsy and plastic and created a brand of fantastic gems that will make you smile with delight. Paola has been wearing her spectacular ribbon necklace at the store and after many compliments and questions decided to bring Corey's creations to the shop!
