Happy Easter! Happy Spring! Happy Passover!


It’s my favourite holiday of year (so many bunnies!) and it’s time to get a sneak peek of what our Veg Guide Businesses are cooking (and baking!) up for the holidays! Hope you’re hungry, let’s dive in!


Better Cookies.ca

Send a personalized cookie delivery for Easter and to celebrate Spring. We deliver Easter cookie bouquets, baskets, boxes and jars across Toronto and the the GTA including Hamilton and Burlington. Each gift is baked fresh and made with care. We shape each one by hand and add extra chocolate chips on top to make our chocolate cookies awesome. Please see our Easter gifts page to order online here: https://www.bettercookies.ca/special-gifts/11-easter



Bliss Kitchen

Bliss Kitchen has an Easter menu that looks so good! Plus, selected items purchased with the Mealshare symbol next to it, give a meal to a child in need through the Hamilton Boys and Girls Club. Choose from buffalo bites, stuffed spuds, a strawberry rose smoothie, a rose glow latte, a raspberry lemon nice cream sandwich, carrot cake bites, or a rainbow chocolate Easter egg. Or, don’t choose and order them all!




Easter is back and Bunner’s has all the classics PLUS some new twists on those famous classics!
Introducing our all new line up of center filled Easter Eggs! In addition to our legendary classic Easter Cream Egg, we’ve added some exciting new members to the family – Strawberries & Cream, Caramel Swirl and Coconut Bounty! Try one, two or buy them all in a super cute Easter Egg Four Pack!
If you’re looking for a beautiful centerpiece for your dessert table this year, we have a beautifully decorated Lemon & Blueberry Easter Cake that could not be any more festive. And if you want something creamy and rich, you can opt for our stunning Raspberry Lemon Two Layer Cheesecake.
To round things out (it’s not all about sweets you know!) we’ve brought back our ever popular Sundried Tomato & Asparagus Quiche plus our Fennel & Leek Spring Pie!
ORDER ONLINE, by phone or in-store before the pre-order cutoff date to ensure you get all the goods you need to make this year the perfect Easter celebration!




New for Spring, Cinnaholic has two limited edition flavours: Elderflower Power and Oh Sweet Matcha! Don’t forget, TVA members get 15% off at Cinnaholic, so stop in and try both these flavours before they’re gone!




Spring is finally here! As the birds return and the days get longer it’s no wonder that so many important celebrations coincide around this time (such as Passover, Nowruz, Holi, Ostera…) though the most common spring celebration in Canada is probably Easter.

Even people who don’t recognize Easter as a religious holiday still enjoy it as a secular celebration of chocolate! Which is why ChocoSol has prepared some special treats. Chocolate Bunnies: Made from our popular Vanilla Sea Salt chocolate, these delectable creatures are ready to hop right into your belly! Get them for $13 each or 3 for $30. Easter Eggs: Dark chocolate shell, coconut butter filling and jaguar chocolate centre, these Easter-themed treats are as healthy as they are delicious! $4 each or 3 for $10

These items are only available in store and at farmers markets, so come by and say hello! ChocoSol’s chocolates are free from nuts, soy, dairy, gluten, and guilt so you can feel good about a little seasonal indulgence!



Cosmic Treats

Cosmic Treats will be offering cream cheese frosted, marshmallow-eared, vegan, carrot cake Easter bunny cupcakes. Aren’t they the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? Don’t try to bite them cuz they’ll bite you back! Open the entire Easter long weekend from Friday, April 19 until Monday, April 22.
