After a tiring day, we let ourselves sleep a bit more on the third day in Quebec City. After having breakfast, we were ready to explore the other side of Rue Saint-Jean, the area further from Old Quebec. From the research I did, there is a Chocolate museum somewhere along this street, so that was our goal.

Passing the St. Mathew Cemetry, we finally found Erico Chocolate Museum. We came just in time the store to open. This chocolate museum & store tucked between shops and restaurants that we almost missed it. Thanks to the iPhone app (Vive Cite) that buzzed to notify that we were near. They had a Christmas display in front of the store made of chocolate. To the left of the store, there was a mini chocolate museum. It shows the history of chocolate, the ancient tools to make it, and some of the modern moulds for chocolate production. There was a big window where we could see the kitchen. When we were there, nobody was in the kitchen – maybe we were too early 😛 They also had some dispensers containing chocolate from different countries. My fiance tried the 100% cacao and it was bitter! Oddly enough, he liked it hahhaha… After browsing the museum, we headed to the store. They sold some cute shaped chocolate, such as iPod, Blackberry, guitar, and violin. We bought some chocolate as gifts for our friends and we also bought 2 chocolate cupcakes. The cupcakes were very dense chocolate cake and the frosting was good too! What a great way to start our day 🙂 There were some seats in the front of museum, so we enjoyed our cupcake while planning our next destination.
