“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…”
The winter doldrums take a turn for the delicious during this month of fun and decadence – Hot Chocolate Festival arrives on January 19th! Four weeks of sipping and snacking on chocolatey treats across the city. This year 29 cafes, bakeries, chocolatiers and dessert shops are participating with over 60 different hot chocolate concoctions. Glenburn is participating for our third year in a row and this year we’ve decided to offer a different variety each week of the festival:
#37 – “ALL THAT AND A BAG OF CHIPS”
Salted toffee hot Callebaut milk chocolate, garnished with chocolate potato chip toffee.
Served with a mini bag of “Rootables” potato chips.
Available: January 19 – 25. (Except Monday, January 23.)
#38 – “FLOAT YOUR BOAT”
Cola-infused Callebaut dark hot chocolate topped with Birchwood dairy vanilla ice cream.
Served with a house-made black and white cookie.
Available: January 26 – February 1. (Except Monday, January 30.)
#39 – “FREEZE TAG”
Peanut butter-infused Callebaut milk chocolate which has been first frozen and then blended.

Looking forward to seeing you during the festival – we’ll be checking out the offerings from our fellow “choc-stars” too. Consider making it a hot chocolate double-header by hitting up Chez Christophe and Glenburn in one day – there’s a fair walk between our two shops so you’ll get a good bit of exercise in on the journey.
