When the weather gets especially chilly, Hot Cocoa has been the go-to for many since childhood.

YYC Hot Chocolate Fest is the friendly and delicious competition to find the local business who offers Calgary’s Best Hot Chocolate and Calgary’s Best Spirited Hot Chocolate, as voted by Calgarians!

Over 75 local cafes, restaurants, and chocolatiers are offering more than 80 hot chocolates for Calgary to enjoy. The best part? All of these delicious hot chocolates support a great cause. Partial proceeds from each hot chocolate sold will support Calgary Meals on Wheels’ Home Meal Delivery Program, serving over 700 Calgarians with nutritious meals every day. Sip with satisfaction all February long on these delicious signature hot chocolates across the city.

This year’s edition features 50 regular hot chocolates and over 30 spirited hot chocolates available! Gluten free, dairy free, vegan and fair trade options are all available – just search for each term to see which drinks are best for you!

Calgarians are encouraged to rate each hot chocolate they try to determine the winners for 2017.

Visit the event website to check out the signature hot chocolates, participating businesses and locations, and to rate your favourites.

See you there!
