Sunday, November 6th, 2016 was The Toronto Luxury Chocolate Show at Roy Thomson Hall. Below the slideshow are three things I enjoyed about The Toronto Luxury Chocolate Show. They are followed by three things I felt would be some luxury income generators for the appropriate vendors at future shows. .
I had a great time this afternoon at The Toronto Luxury Chocolate Show. I competed in the second chocolate eating competition of the day. (There was a first place winner, a second place cheater and the rest of us were tied for third.) I tried to pull the WIlly Wonka Golden Ticket for a visit to a secret chocolate factory. (I would love to get in there for a photo shoot.) Plus, I scored a full sized S'mores style chocolate bar from one of the chef demonstrations. (Um ... .what could I say about that ..... YUMMY!!!)
Three things I would have liked to have seen included in The Toronto Luxury Chocolate Show are 1] chocolate critters - I think the more luxurious the chocolate the more palatable the critters might be.. They could make one of the eating competitions chocolate covered critters only. 2] chocolate fondue skewers - A little serving or two of fruit helps alleviate the guilt of gorging on so much chocolate. & 3] onsite chocolate facials - Come on it's The Toronto LUXURY Chocolate Show. Chocolate is suppose to be high in antioxidants. So skip the waste line and apply it directly to the face as needed.
Maybe they could even take a page from the Royal Agricultural Fair's play book. Instead, of a butter sculpture competition, a chocolate sculpture competition. Now that would be luxurious.
