Contest – Nanaimo’s Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

UPDATE: Congratulations! Becky and Cindy have each won a $20 gift certificate to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory in Nanaimo! Thanks to all who entered.

Even if it’s just in our heads, I think most people would agree with me when I say that food tastes better when it’s made locally. Particularly if that food is of the chocolate variety!

Since opening at Departure Bay ferry terminal in August, 2010, the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory has made it their mission to craft incredible fair trade chocolates. Combined with that chocolate and lovingly made from scratch, RMCF has been creating caramel, brittle, fudge, seafoam (honeycomb toffee, see photo below) and rockypop (caramel popcorn with nuts) right in-store. The tantalizing smells making their way from RMCF’s shop are impossible to resist!

The privilege of experiencing RMCF’s sumptuous samplings has been limited to those traveling out of Nanaimo by ferry. However, with the Christmas season fast approaching, RMCF has loaded up their sleigh with some of their most-loved treats and are setting up shop in Nanaimo’s North Town Centre mall. Watch for their pop-up shop as of November 7th near the Fairway Market entrance.

  1. It really doesn’t get better than chocolate and peanut butter!! :)

  2. My fave chocolate treat is dark chocolate with mint. RMCF’s pecan clusters and english toffee are a close second.

  3. Added Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory on Facebook as a friend.

  4. I have a weakness for their Skor caramel Apples… and I’ve been friends with the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory for a while now! Yum!

  5. the english toffee with chocolate and nuts on the outside, so delish!! Added on FB as well :)

  6. Their english toffee apple brings caramel apples to a whole new level, so in love! & their boxed chocolates makes Christmas shopping so easy :) (I’m early I know…)

  7. Absolute favourite is the Apple Pie Apples. I could easily sit down though and finish off a bag of cordial cherries though if you twist my arm. :)

  8. Oh and I am already FB friends as soon as I saw they were on FB.Need to keep up on the chocolate updates.
