It all started when...
Pure Lovin' Chocolate is located in beautiful Victoria, BC, Canada and was imagined, created and is now operated by a mother (Cyndy) and daughter (Leah) team. Cyndy and Leah have always shared a close relationship and a mutual love of wholesome food, animals and the environment.
Leah fell in love with cooking at an early age, while helping Cyndy create delicious, healthy meals in the kitchen of their log home in rural BC. This is also where Cyndy taught her the art of confectionery: making Sponge Toffee, Brittle, Taffy and other treats for special occasions.
Leah went on to study cooking at S.A.I.T in Calgary, Alberta and graduated with her Red Seal Certificate in the trade, with a keen interest in sweets and confectionery. After years of cooking professionally in restaurants, Leah was looking to take a different direction and focus on a more socially conscious approach to cooking. Meanwhile, Cyndy had just returned to Victoria following several years of living abroad. After living on separate continents for years, Leah and Cyndy were both eager to spend more time together and do something they were both passionate about. After Leah made up a batch of Vegan Truffles for Cyndy as a Mother's Day gift, the concept of Pure Lovin' Chocolate was born!
We genuinely hope that you love our delicious artisan confections and chocolates as much as we do.
