Every year, Taste of Guelph raises thousands of dollars to support vital equipment needs for St. Joseph’s Health Centre Guelph, and over the last five years has raised an amazing $600,000. But it wouldn’t be possible without the support of our generous food and beverage participants, sponsors, volunteers, and attendees. With the cancellation of Taste of Guelph 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is our turn to support those who help make our event so successful. Check out the blog below to see how you can support local!

Have a sweet tooth? There is no doubt that Guelph is home to spots and shops offering some sweet treats. If you are looking for post-dinner delight, consider checking out one of these delectable Guelph businesses!

Chocolats Favoris

Chocolats Favoris has been making artisanal chocolates since 1979, so there is no question that they are exceptional at what they do.

While you’re there, consider bringing home one of their fondues that pair deliciously with fresh fruit, or try one of their fun chocolate dipped ice cream cones to cool you down on a hot summer day.
