Chelsea Chocolates began its journey in 1995 with a desire to make ‘melt in your mouth’ chocolates using fresh cream, butter, high quality flavours and the finest in Belgian chocolate. We are proud to make all our chocolates by hand with homemade fillings to include our famous caramel. People rave from near and far about our caramel turtles and butter creams – it’s kind of like Aunt Jemima’s secret recipe!
Chelsea Chocolates manufactures a complete line of quality chocolates, truffles and specialty items. We believe in making chocolates to order and in small batches to maintain quality and freshness. We have enjoyed excellent customer response. Our chocolates are made in the small village of Craighurst, near Barrie, Ontario, in the traditional hand-formed manner.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of the baskets will go to the projects supported by the Rotary Club of Barrie.

The Rotary Club of Barrie has launched a new contest to grade 8 students in Simcoe County.
The contest asks students to write an 800 word essay on “Why it would be cool to be an astronaut”. The students with the top three entries will be invited to meet famous Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield in a special reception on November 25, 2014 at an upcoming Rotary event in Barrie. They will also win free pizza for their entire class. The student with the winning entry will also be provided with an opportunity to “fly a 747” at the University of Toronto’s Institute for Aerospace Studies.
