the results are in!

The first Comox Valley Hot Chocolate Festival, held in February, encouraged thousands of residents and visitors to enjoy a delicious dose of hot chocolate, whipped cream and sprinkles.

“We’re excited about the fun and support this year’s Festival created,” says Hollee Card, Community Leader & Executive Director for L’Arche Comox Valley, the host of the event. “Thank you to everyone who came out to support us and all of the participating businesses – they are the stars of the Festival! Thanks to your support, L’Arche is able to support people with intellectual disabilities to live confident and connected lives.”

 Festivalgoers visited different food and drink spots in the Valley, shared their experience with family and friends and rated their drinks and treats online. While it took us some time to gather all of the results, here they are:

Biscoff Please!
Top-Rated Hot Chocolate

Most Hot Chocolate Sold

Hot Chocolate: The Pastry
Top-Rated Chocolate Delight


Based on the feedback that L’Arche received from Festivalgoers and participating businesses, we’re planning to return in February 2025 with the Comox Valley Chocolate Festival – All Things Chocolate in the Valley! Watch for more information through the year.
