The Violet Chocolate Company has been making award-winning flavoured chocolate since 2012 from their studio in Edmonton, Alberta. Rebecca Grant, owner and chocolatier, uses traditional techniques, quality ingredients, and inspiration from her experiences as a Red Seal Chef to create uniquely flavoured bars.
Olive is the store puppy. She is often in the back with her mom and loves everyone on the team. She is a ray of sunshine – adores all of her toys, runs very fast and loves to chase her tail until she gets dizzy. She is a shitty cavapoo – was purchased as a cavapoo but is so small, she had her genetics done and turns out she is also part shih tzu – thus shitty cavapoo – she is absolutely perfect !!!
