This Christmas, chocolate lovers have been blessed with the greatest gift of all. A brand new store has opened in Toronto, and it's worthy of Willy Wonka himself. Next time you're in the mood for something sweet, you can head over to this scrumptious spot and treat yourself to all the chocolate of your dreams. Toronto's Läderach chocolate store is officially open, and you can shop all sorts of authentic Swiss delights.
Läderach Chocolatier Suisse is the largest chocolate retailer in Switzerland. On December 4, the company opened its first North American location in Toronto's Eaton Centre.
A celebratory Swiss Parade kicked off the grand opening event. Alphorn players and traditional Swiss cow herders with bells marched through the Eaton Centre to commemorate this new chocolate paradise.
The flagship store is located on the second floor of the mall, and visitors can find tons of authentic chocolate to fulfil their sweetest cravings.
The shop offers over 100 types of chocolate and has a specialty fresh chocolate counter where you can choose from over twenty varieties of hand-cut chocolate bark.
Visit an entire counter dedicated to Läderach's praline and MiniMousses collection, and shop seasonal and other chocolate varieties throughout the store.
All of the chocolates are made in Switzerland and shipped directly to Toronto, so you can taste some authentic Swiss confection without hopping on a plane.
In a press release, CEO Johannes Läderach called the new Toronto store, "...a significant milestone for us as we enter North America for the first time and offer a uniquely fresh chocolate experience directly from Switzerland".
Toronto is becoming somewhat of a chocolate paradise, with the Kit Kat Chocolatory having also just opened in November.
The store lets you create your own unique Kit Kats, and sells special edition bars.
Next time you're doing some shopping, you can stop by Läderach's new Toronto flagship to indulge in some real Swiss chocolate.
