Chocolates are synonymous with romance, and being surprised with a big ole box of your favourite sweet treat is always the best. But why stick to one measly box when you and bae could go on an epic Toronto chocolate tour? With multiple sweet stops throughout the city, this tour is one of the sweetest dates you'll go on all season.
Sure, there are plenty of pre-planned tours that you could choose from, but those can get expensive quick.
Instead, why not go on a self-guided tour with some of these decadent chocolate shops and cafes that we've gathered below.
The best part? You can knock off every stop on this tour in just one afternoon.
Each location is no more than 15 minutes away from the first stop via transit. And, even better, many of them are just a few minutes away on foot.
From unique gem-shaped creations to insane milkshakes topped with donuts, you'll have a full-on chocolate overload in no time.
So, all that's left to do is find the perfect chocolate-loving date, and prepare for the sugar rush of your lives. Hopefully, your date is just as sweet as the dessert.
