Founder Eric Normand started making small-batch fudge in the 1980s, and later expanded to ice creams and chocolate sweets before training with French pastry chef Bernard Laloi. His chocolate shop, Erico, which opened in 1987, brought together his range of culinary passions. The favored Quebec shop is a one-stop dessert powerhouse, serving everything from cookies and brownies and cupcakes to sophisticated cakes and pastries. The menu also includes 10 different varieties of hot chocolate. Take the edge off a balmy evening with one of their 70 ice creams, including sorbets, frozen yogurts, and iced tofus (the Madagascar vanilla soft serve dipped in chocolate is the most popular). In 2014, the shop was handed down to two younger chocolatiers, Cedric Allain and Éric Louinet, to continue the longstanding sweets tradition.
