Chocolate factories in Toronto

Toronto chocolate factories are quite secretive; you just might need a golden ticket to get in. Some house massive operations, which churn out the brand name treats that fill grocery store shelves. But the city is also home to smaller, locally run shops that make delicious (and now world-renowned) treats to satisfy even the most voracious of chocoholics.

Nestlé Canada, 72 Sterling Road
Located on the still-industial Sterling Road, Nestlé Canada creates some of Canada's most iconic confections, such as Smarties and Coffee Crisp bars. A few years back, the Nestlé plant made headlines after it tried to stop a developer from building a mixed-use tower nearby. And, it'll soon get an artsy new neighbour: MOCCA (the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art).

Cadbury, 277 Gladstone Avenue
The Cadbury factory on Gladstone, between College and Dundas, is rather notorious for its intoxicatingly sweet smell. That's because it's responsible for creating all of Cadbury's Canadian products, including Caramilk, Dairy Milk and Mr. Big. And yes, you can also rest assured that you're buying local whenever you pick up a Cream Egg or a package of Mini Eggs.

SOMA Chocolatemakers, 35 Golden Avenue
This Toronto-based company is known for its high-quality, craft-chocolate and it can now say it makes one of the best dark chocolate bars in the world. It whips up many of its confections out of its small, west side factory. It doesn't, however, open this rather secret space up for tours. But you can still watch SOMA chocolatiers create magic at the Distillery store.

Sweet Olenka's, 21 Jutland Road
Sweet Olenka's has a factory and store in Etobicoke. It makes all of its ice creams and chocolates at this location, meaning there's now one more way for you to indulge in your craving for freshly made truffles and ice cream sammies.
