After tasting your favourite hot chocolate please vote right here on our website! Scroll down to place your vote. Only one vote per person. We will be awarding a prize to the business that sold the most, and to the business who was the fan favourite during the Warmest Mug Event! Thanks for participating and voting!

Voting deadline: February 19th at midnight.

Each participating business will create a unique signature hot chocolate beverage that they will sell from January 19 – February 19. Proceeds from the sales of this beverage will go to support the work of Michael House to help provide shelter and support to pregnant and parenting women and their children in need in our community.

Plan a date night with your favourite someone, invite your friends or co-workers, or enjoy an outing with family and visit participating businesses during the month to try the various signature hot chocolates. The cost to participate is to purchase the hot chocolate signature drink at participating businesses. Once you’ve tried a few, or tried them all come back here to vote for your favourite!
