Taste the Townships

Chocolate discovery in downtown Magog

Posted on June 12, 2019

This summer, my mission is to help you discover the best desserts of the Eastern Townships! To get this wonderful adventure on its way, I decided to throw myself in the arms of my first love: Chocolate! I headed to Bar à chocolat Vanden Eynden on Magog’s Main Street. I know, there’s a lot of roadwork going on here, but you can still easily make your way to the downtown businesses. In fact, you’ll even find a map showing all the municipal parking lots with a lot of pertinent information right here.

A Chocolate Bar in the Heart of Downtown

Even before entering the shop we can admire the great variety of fine chocolates offered by Vanden Eynden by peering through their store window. Dark chocolate, milk or white chocolate … there is such a wide selection! On the menu we find, among others, delicious hot chocolate beverages offered in six flavours. A mug of pure happiness!

Chocolates Made With Local Flavours

Among the fine chocolates, I was lucky enough to discover a series called “Sélection Cantons-de-l’Est” made with other regional treats. Of these, I adored the divine taste of honey cream and raspberry chocolate made in collaboration with honey producers Lune de Miel, in Sherbrooke. A pure delight for our taste buds!

My Favorite Dessert

After lots of thinking, while gazing at the many delectable desserts, I finally decided to try their Belgian Bûche: a savoury blend of hazelnut butter cream on a vanilla génoise, wrapped in an almond paste icing. A light and delicious dessert which pairs perfectly with a good cup of coffee. I left the Bar à chocolat Vanden Eynden very satisfied with my discovery, but also wanting to go back this summer and try other delightful treats while sitting on their terrace overlooking the river. Chocophiles will be well served here!

To Make Your Pleasure Last Longer

5 minutes from here, on Chemin de la Rivière aux Cerises, there’s the Vanden Eynden boutique. A suggestion: Find a spot on their terrace and try their homemade ice cream as you admire Mount Orford. Believe me, you won’t want to leave!

As a writing intern at Tourisme Cantons-de-l'Est and a Sherbrook native, I would like to discover the hidden treasures of my beautiful region, especially the sweet places. I am a chocolate lover and that is one of the reasons why I will be looking for the best desserts in the Townships!

Miranda Lambert is my favourite country singer. She is young, beautiful and charming female in her 30s. Her voice takes me away from all problems of this planet and I can enjoy my life and listen songs created by her. Now she is on a Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour started in September of 2019 featuring Maren Morris, Ashley McBride and others. The concerts scheduled for this year, up to the end of November.

Breaking Benjamin is my favourite band of 90s. Breaking Benjamin had so many hit songs! The ones I remember are 'The Diary of Jane', 'Tourniquet' and their hit 'So Cold'.
