Purdy sweet chocolate for the holidays


Purdys Chocolatiers, Julia Cho and Rachel McKinley joined us from British Columbia where Purdys is based, to share two chocolates.

The Dear Santa Collection helps children’s hospital foundations across Canada. The campaign started in 2019 when Purdys learned that children in hospital during the holidays were worried that Santa wouldn’t be able to find them at Christmas. The Dear Santa bar is a milk chocolate bar studded with crunchy salted toffee bits and $2 from every bar sold goes to support a partnering children’s hospital helping to make a child’s Christmas a little better.

Purdys also came out with a new chocolate this year called the North Pole Salted Caramels. This chocolate is special because they went to the Artic Circle to get the sea salt that is on top of the chocolate, which melts in your mouth just like snowflakes.
