The Newfoundland Chocolate Company

"Life is like a box of chocolates.
You never know what you're gonna get"

-Mrs. Gump

When I went home to St. John's, NL for Christmas, I was thrilled to find that a new business had been created in my absence; The Newfoundland Chocolate Company. Owners Christina Dove and Brent Smith started creating these little bits of chocolaty goodness in 2008 using imported Belgian, Swiss and French 'coverture' chocolate.

This Terra Nova Series, a box containing both milk and dark chocolates combined with real NL berries; blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, all combined with hazelnuts and almonds. I'm not normally a melt-in-your-mouth chocolate kind of girl, but these chocolates make you sit-up and take notice. With their unusual addition of black currants, cranberries and partridgeberries, these are seriously one of those treats that I have to force myself to walk away from.

Check out their stuff, or better yet, buy their stuff. You won't be disappointed!

I have never seen such good looking chocolates in St. John's - I can only imagine how they taste!

I was there just 2 days ago, they sent these chocolate to guests' rooms as gifts at Everton House, they are SO good!
