The World's Chocolate Shops at Your Fingertips

Here's one for chocophiles everywhere. Get your daily fix of the sweet treat with Chocomap. This new Canadian web site, sponsored by Ecole Chocolat, uses the Google Maps API to find chocolate shops throughout the world. Using the standard Google Maps interface, you can search geographically then zoom in on a location. Read brief descriptions of chocolate destinations or post your own review. There's lots of other useful information too, including recipes, chocolate e-cards, interviews with top chocolatiers, tips on cooking with chocolate, and background information about the origin and cultivation of the plant that gives us this wonderful food.


Already, the site has more than 1,000 listings in over thirty countries. Definitely one for my favourites list.

Not good for chocolate addicts... he he. Good and interesting idea. I guess they might only get a very small market, but they'll get the best of that market which is a really good idea. It's a very long-tail-marketing kind of idea. I think it will work very well for them. It would be nice if they could consider some of the smaller countries though. I hope they manage to increase and do so – would love to know where to find the best chocs for my girlfriend here.

Yummy! Just don’t show this to people who are on diet. How about a partnership with online stores that offer diet and weight loss goods without the need for letting go of sweets and chocolates?
