Chocolate says “I love you” in the sweetest way, so head to SOMA Chocolatemaker in Toronto’s Distillery District and treat your sweetheart to some sugary creations that say it loud and clear. This fascinating shop is a perfect spot for a day date, so take your honey by the hand and let the hauntingly delicious cocoa aroma awaken the chocolate-lover in both of you. Before making your selections from the neat shelves of goodies, take a moment to spy on SOMA’s chocolate-makers in the glass-walled factory to see exactly where these bites of heaven are coming from. Everything made here is fair trade and organic, so you’ll feel good knowing that your little indulgence helped a farmer in the Dominican Republic, Madagascar, Costa Rica, or Panama earn a living. You only want the best for your significant other, so you’ll have to sample a few chocolates yourself for “quality control” before letting your love make the final selections. Must-haves include the dark chocolate orange peel, cedar pine truffle and Mexican chocolate shot. Splitting a dish of artisanal gelato can’t hurt, either.
