KitKat Is Opening A Make-Your-Own-Chocolate Store In Toronto

Chocoholics, rejoice! Following its popular pop-up in Toronto last year, KitKat Canada has announced that it’s opening something extra special for Canadians later this year.

KitKat will be opening a permanent store in Toronto this fall.

The chocolate wafer bar announced on Twitter that it would be opening its first Canadian KitKat Chocolatory flagship store in Yorkdale Shopping Centre.

If the Canadian flagship is anything like the pop-up that was on Queen St. West last year, we’re all in for a big treat!

Last year’s store offered shoppers the opportunity to create their own chocolate bars completely custom to their tastes. Visitors had the option to choose from three different types of chocolate and up to three toppings of 16 toppings ranging from roasted chopped pistachios and dried cranberries, to caramelized popcorn and rose petals.

The pop-up came outfitted with self-serve stations, and once the order was complete, customers could watch the KitKat chocolatiers behind plexiglass making their creations in the KitKat kitchen.

In addition to make-your-own KitKat bars, the pop-up sold pre-made chocolate wafer bars in unique flavours.

So, if waiting around to create your own bar just isn’t your thing, then you could also just grab-and-go! It also featured a super Insta-worthy selfie room and backgrounds for snapping the perfect pic.

While this will be Canada’s first KitKat Chocolatory, there are tons of them in Japan, where it’s not just a chocolate, it’s a full blown obsession.

There are currently eight locations in Japan, and KitKat’s are some of the country’s best-selling treats.

Only time will tell if the KitKat Chocolatory will be as popular here as it is in Japan, but if the line-ups from the last Toronto pop-up are anything like the ones to come, we’re sure this won’t be the last Canadian KitKat Chocolatory to open.
