Sweet Spot Chocolate Shop

An Easter without chocolate would be like Valentine’s Day without… well chocolate! Make sure to include some of Sweet Spot Chocolate Shop’s delicious figurines or chocolate covered marshmallow eggs to your Easter basket!

Gourmandises Avenue Choclaterie

Gourmandises Avenue Chocolaterie has truly outdone themselves this Easter! They’ve created chocolate figurines and beautifully decorated eggs that are perfect to include in a basket or hide around the house. Check out their social media to see the 3ft chocolate bunny they made!

Drinks

Wineries

Easter is not just a time for the kids! If you’re filling an Easter basket for adults, make sure you include some Nova Scotia wine.

The Tea Brewery

Boxing Rock Brewing Company

SUBMITTED

We are taking a page out of the Easter Bunny’s playbook with this one. Sip on and enjoy Boxing Rock’s 14 Carrot Gold pale ale. It may not count towards your daily vegetable intake, but 1,100 pounds of carrots were used to create this delicious brew! Hurry before the Easter Bunny scoops every case up.

Get Together

The Flying Apron Inn & Cookery

What good is a holiday if you don’t need to wear stretchy pants for a few days afterwards? The Flying Apron’s brunch buffet will certainly keep you coming back for more with everything from cinnamon raisin french toast with NS maple syrup to lamb and vegetable hash with feta. They even have assorted Easter squares and cookies. Maybe even turn their Easter brunch buffet into a getaway with their Easter room special!

Sugar Moon Farm

Come on up for some spring yumminess! Make a visit to Sugar Moon Farm to adventure on a hike through the woods, followed by a sugary, maple inspired brunch, and if your sweet tooth still is not satisfied have some sugar-on-snow and go on a sugar camp tour.
