Some of the Best Chocolate Bakeries Around Barrie

Everyone has a sweet tooth. And if you don't, you're probably missing out on the sweeter things in life. It doesn't matter how old you are. From kids to seniors, most people have an urge for something sweet and tasty.

Of course, how big your craving is for sweet things may differ from person to person. Some people live for desserts.

These folks can devour half a dozen cupcakes without blinking an eye. While others humbly opt for a small piece of pie after they have completed their meals. There's no shame in the sweet tooth game.

What are your favourite glutton-filled pleasures? Do you like pastries like lemon tarts, macarons, pies, danishes or strudels? Or maybe you prefer something to cool you down on a hot summer day, like ice cream sandwiches, banana splits, popsicles or freezes. And of course, there are classic sweet tooth staples like chips and candies.

By far, the most popular sweet has to be chocolate. Chocolate comes in every shape and flavour you can imagine. It has a velvety texture and rich flavour that can't be beaten. If you are looking for a few chocolate spots to meet your cravings, the City of Barrie certainly has you covered.

Barrie has so many chocolate spots you could probably make a day of going to each one.
