July 28, 2020 Decadence A Review by Hassan Hawash Decadence Decadence is it moral or cultural decay? No way? Is it a sweet indulgence? Yes! Reminds me of when my mother would say let’s indulge in something sweet as we would settle in for an evening to watch a movie on television. Out would come the box of chocolates. Out would come some ice cream. Decadence. So, yes, although a sweet indulgence when you bite into the chocolate there is a rich quality something akin to what you may taste biting into dark chocolate. Two of the chocolates that I can vouch for is the banoffee and passion fruit. Two lusc – pleasingly rich, sweet taste - choices for sure. It’s at 70 Sherbrook Street, open from 10 am to 6 pm everyday, just past Stella’s on the right side of the road just off Broadway. Oh, there is the sign, DECADENCE. Not far now. Hello, are you the owner? Yes, I am. Hmmm, oh you must be from England. I first caught myself looking at Helen’s hat and then noticing her obvious English accent. ‘I got off the train here in Winnipeg on the way to Vancouver where I intended to settle, but here I am now. Going on 20 years since that day’, she reminisced. You know, I reported, your chocolate shop comes very highly recommended. Two bakeries referred me to you. Now, never mind a live tweet, this is a personal endorsement from Helen’s peers. What could be better than word of mouth advertising? ‘Yeah, which ones,’ she asked? Two pretty big hitters from what I gather. This presence in the community is not terribly surprising, as Decadance has reached out to the community by way of making the Decadence brand name known by way of offering up chocolate making as an activity for a birthday party. Minimum 10 to have a class. Various celebrations have made good use of her custom designed chocolates as part of a wedding say as a thank you gift. You may be hosting a buffet. A chocolate selection would be a great addition for after the meal to go along with your tea or coffee. What’s more, perhaps as a team building event Decadance could host events ranging from tasting to making these fine on site-produced chocolates. You could sign up to learn firsthand how chocolate is grown and what is involved in the chocolate making process for a class of up to a maximum of 12 participants. So, now let me tell you what I need. Hmmm, well I am buying a present for an Arab, a devout Muslim. In a twinkle of an eye, Helen knew instinctively not to include chocolate with either alcohol or gelatin. She knows the clientele. The chocolate was very well received. There is such a wide variety of an assortment of chocolate arrangements, on hand in the shop, and again if you have any ideas for custom-made chocolates Helen has got game. The shop does appeal to a clientele who can indulge in not only chocolate, but also there is a fair selection of ice cream. Ice-cream made right on site. I can vouch for the passion fruit with salted caramel swirl. There is a corner that appeals to coffee lovers and with a nod to home brew – coffee roasted here in Manitoba. In that same vein, Decadence chocolate is produced right there on site. A selection of boxes are available for purchase that make for a great presentation as far as a gift goes. From what I can gather, Decadence is much more than a chocolate shop. It can appeal to many people’s needs. I have no doubt it can appeal to yours.
Dan is the Man! Very good experience purchasing some tasty treats!
