Like the range it was named after, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory has carved a path across North America, opening its first Canadian store in Whistler in 1988. Every day, refrigerated trucks dispatched from a 53,000-square-foot factory bring fresh treats to glistening display cases in each confectionary outpost.
Today, these hefty morsels reside behind display glass in the form of truffles, molded chocolates, and signature treats such as the Bear—a palm-sized mix of caramel, roasted nuts, and a thick coating of chocolate. Each shop also churns out fudge made daily and candy apples dipped in caramel, nuts, and even cheesecake. Assorted goodies fit into artistically arranged baskets, and seasonal and holiday treats make for tasty stocking stuffers or a good way to fill your mouth during awkward silences at family séances.
