Entering it’s 6th year, YYC Hot Chocolate Fest returns, featuring unique, traditional and creative hot chocolate beverages at locations all over Calgary. Throughout the month of February, participating cafes, restaurants, and chocolatiers are featuring signature hot chocolate drinks at their locations, and some are even offering both alcoholic and non alcoholic versions.
Calgarians are encouraged to go out and try as many hot chocolates as they like with partial proceeds of every hot chocolate sold going to Calgary Meals on Wheels. Customers are given a Hot Chocolate passport they can get stamped to potentially win prizes and it’s their online ratings that decide which business will win the coveted title of Calgary’s Best Hot Chocolate and Calgary’s Best Spirited Hot Chocolate. So make sure you rate every hot cocoa you try!
Given February is typically a cold month here in Calgary, it’s the perfect time to cozy up with someone you love or love to hang out with, and enjoy a cup of steaming hot chocolate for a good cause.
We’ve been out and about hunting for the best hot chocolate in Calgary and every one we’ve tried has been uniquely delicious.
Have you tried any of the YYC Hot Chocolate Hot Chocolate? If not, what is your favourite kind of hot chocolate?
I was asked to be a Hot Chocolate Ambassador and given some hot chocolate coupons to try a few of the hot chocolates around Calgary during the month of February. Several of the hot cocoas I am featuring were purchased by myself. All opinions remain my own.
