Purdys Chocolatier: It is never too early for Christmas Chocolates

What is better than Christmas presents? An EARLY Christmas gift in mid-November! Few days ago, I got a blogger mail from Purdys Chocolatier, a Vancouver-based chocolatier. They recently launched the chocolate collections for Christmas, which allow customers to pre-order their Christmas gifts online.

Mr. Mustache Tea & Dessert: Bento Box and Oolong Tea Macchiato

It is difficult to look for a cafe that opens until midnight in Vancouver, but if you are in the Burnaby or Marpole area, I have a recommendation for you.

I didn’t buy the birthday pack, but instead I went lineup on Saturday to purchase some treats for Mr. and myself. The first 100 customers who purchase $25 or more can get a box of 12 pcs birthday-edition chocolate for free, and that’s the main reason for me to line up!
