Holiday Gift Ideas: Hagensborg Chocolate for Chocolate Lovers #Giveaway

One of my favorite gifts to give for any occasion is chocolate because let's face it, who doesn't love chocolate? I always enjoy visiting small chocolate shops because they put the love and care into making their chocolates. I recently discovered Hagensborg Chocolates, a local company with their shop based out in Burnaby, BC (103-3686 Bonneville Place).

Hagensborg uses the finest European ingredients to make their gourmet chocolate. Their main line of chocolates are Truffle Pigs, which are adorable chocolates in the shape of little piglets. The name came about because pigs were used to sniff out truffles in the forest. With Christmas around the corner, Hagensborg Chocolates is offering their products in holiday themed packaging in addition to their regular items. These gourmet chocolates would make the perfect gift or stocking stuffer, or a treat for yourself (or several treats, if you're me!). Gift baskets can also be purchased if you're looking for a larger gift.

I made a trip out to their shop to see what they had to offer...

I'm on the right track!
Hagensborg is located in Burnaby, BC, near the Production Way skytrain station.
A cute little shop, with a small seating area included so you can indulge in chocolate right inside the store!
Festive Truffle Pig Mini chocolate boxes. These are great stocking stuffers!
Christmas Truffle Pig mixed pouches.
An assortment of Truffle Pig bars that come in many different and delicious flavours, including mocha,  peanut butter and jam, hazelnut and white bubblegum!
Newest to the Truffle Pig line are Wild Boar bars, made from single origin chocolate.
Gorgeous gift baskets are also available for any chocolate lover in your life.
The store also sells single chocolates if you're only looking for a little snack. Interesting flavours are offered, including chili and more festive flavours like egg nog and peppermint.
A Christmas milk chocolate pouch containing 10 truffle pigs.
Five are regular milk chocolate and the other five are filled with amazingly gooey caramel.
Truffle Pig chocolates are as adorable as it's name - each chocolate is shaped like a pig. I almost didn't want to eat it because it was too cute!
I couldn't resist purchasing some Truffle Pig bars. I opted for the Mocha and the Dark & White Raspberry bars.
Another cute pig shaped chocolate bar! The inside is a dark chocolate with a raspberry flavour.

The chocolate I tried definitely was delicious. The different flavours were amazing, and I'm tempted to go and buy every single bar just to try all of them! I also suggest buying more than one Truffle Pig because you really can't eat just one!

If you aren't able to make it to the store, Hagensborg Chocolates also sells their chocolate online through their website. Truffle Pigs are also found at IGA, Whole Foods and Urban Fare for locals who are interested in trying out these delicious treats. Make sure to connect with Hagensborg Chocolates on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with what's going on with their store, and any promotions they're running.
