When Charles “Candy” Rogers opened his first chocolate shop in 1885, in Victoria, B.C., he couldn’t have predicted that he was laying the groundwork for one of the proudest confectionary traditions in Canada. Today, Rogers’ Chocolates has 9 stores, and a massive online operation. The company is now approaching its 130th anniversary – and many of the chocolate recipes have been unchanged since then, specifically those from their “Classics” line. The company offers a wide variety of chocolate and themed gifts, many for specific occasions and milestones. They also have ice cream! Will certainly be a handy store to have in the neighbourhoood, whether you’re headed to a friend’s for dinner or a birthday is coming up. Come visit their store today! They are always sampling!
Located on Shrum Lane across from the BC Liquor Store.
