Vancity Good Money Mob: CocoaNymph Chocolates & Confections

Comments 69 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Last week Vancity launched the second round of their Good Money Mob in support of three local businesses. As their partner for this round, I selected Uprising Breads Bakery, CocoaNymph Chocolates & Confections, and Woodland Smokehouse & Commissary. The public can vote now on which business they would like to support through the Good Money Mob, meaning the business will get the support of Vancity and a “cash mob” from customers.

Today’s spotlight is CocoaNymph Chocolates and Confections. I stopped by the West 7th location (aka NymphEast) to check out their offerings of drinking chocolate, candied nuts, truffles, bars, and lunch items.

About CocoaNymph

  • Location #1: NymphWest: 3739 West 10th Avenue (at Alma) open 11:00am to 7:00pm Monday to Saturday, 1:00pm to 5:00pm Sunday.
  • Location #2: NymphEast: 4 West 7th Avenue (at Ontario) open 8:00am to 6:00pm Monday to Saturday.

NymphEast serves lunch from 10:00am to 4:00pm and carries an assortment of juices to compliment their impressive line up of drinking chocolate.

They frequently use natural, seasonal, and local ingredients in their tasty sweets. Avalon cream, Howe Sound Brewing’s beer for the Stout truffle, fresh valley strawberries, blueberries, peaches, and more.

    I was recently introduced to Cocoa Nymph at Food Talks a little while ago, and the products are amazing! I love how there is an ‘east’ location – it’s so close to me, no excuse not to go more often. 🙂

    Chocolate orgasm

  39. Robert CarnegieWednesday, September 26th, 2012 — 7:31am PDT

    I am a great lover of chocolate from bars, to cubes, to blocks, to martinis, to fondue, to chocolate buffets. I love them all. I prefer white or milk chocolate but admire the texture and unique flavours of all types of chocolate.

    I think I would be like Charlie Bucket going into the chocolate factory if I won $50 at Coco Nymph! 🙂

  45. stuWednesday, September 26th, 2012 — 8:10am PDT

    This place used its powers of manipulated dark chocolate flavours to turn me into an appreciative consumer of said ‘Chocolat Noir’! I used to be a ‘milk choco’ only kind of guy!

  46. kelliWednesday, September 26th, 2012 — 8:29am PDT

    I live for chocolate!!!!

  47. AmeliaWednesday, September 26th, 2012 — 8:37am PDT

    OMG, CocoaNymph’s chocolate bar with sea salt is to die for!

  49. Sandra GarciaWednesday, September 26th, 2012 — 8:47am PDT

    I don’t know if they have created it yet, but dark chocolate with toffee and hazelnut. That is all.

  50. shellyWednesday, September 26th, 2012 — 8:50am PDT

  56. ChelleWednesday, September 26th, 2012 — 12:25pm PDT

    I was going to ask how could I have not noticed that I worked a couple blocks away from their East location, but then I found out that they only just opened recently.

    They are now on my list to check out in the near future.
