Thomas Haas Fine Chocolates & Patisserie (Kitsilano)
It’s no wonder the staff at Thomas Haas wear Powered by Chocolates t-shirts… their confections are that good! While they also serve savory items, the real reason you go to Thomas Haas is for the sweets…
Pain au Chocolat is a French pastry with chocolates in the centre similar to a chocolate croissant. The three pieces of chocolate in the centre was perfect because it’s a very rich chocolate and anything more than that would have overpowered the wonderfully puffy pastry.
Everything in the store looked yummy… especially the colourful Macarons. We picked up a pre-selected box of 6 delicate almond meringues so I’m not sure which flavours they are but, in either case, they’re all wonderfully light and airy.
The Chocolate Sparkles™ Cookies (which are gluten free) were a last minute impulse buy… thank goodness for effective marketing! These cookies have a decadent chocolatey truffle centre.
