Is Rhéo Thompson Candies a Nut Free Facility?
We are not a nut free environment. All our products either contain nuts or have been made in our manufacturing facility where nut products are used.
Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
Is all of your Chocolate Dairy Free?
No. While our Dark couverture chocolate products contain no milk, they do contain butterfat which is a milk ingredients.
Is your Chocolate gluten free?
Our Chocolate is gluten free however there are two products that do contain wheat and they are licorice and pretzels. Both of these products are enrobed in Milk Chocolate and may have come in contact with Cream Centres, Caramels and a few of our specialty products that are also enrobed in Milk Chocolate.
The good news is, our signature Mint Smoothie® is gluten free!
What is the shelf life of your chocolate?
Typically our chocolates taste delicious for at least 6 months. Our Cream centres are cooked and have a shelf-life longer than that of a traditional truffle, but they do contain dairy and are best enjoyed within 4 months.
Other products will have a shorter shelf life, such as fudge or hard candy. If have questions about a specific product, contact us!
Why don’t you provide a Chocolate Map with your packaging?
Each one of our chocolates is made by hand. Mint Smoothies®, Double Chocolate Smoothies and Peanut Butter Creams are made in a mould so they always look the same but Caramels and Cream centres vary in shape and size. We can tell you that our Caramels come in 6 different flavors and are square in shape. Cream centres are round and our production crew use chocolate to handwrite the initial of the flavour on top of each individual piece! V for Vanilla, O for Orange, M for Maple…
Do you offer discounts on large orders?
Whether you’re purchasing one bite-sized piece of candy or a large quantity of gift boxes, we do not discount the price of our products. Our mandate is to keep the prices as low as possible to allow everyone to benefit and enjoy. Fundraising orders are provided with a special price to allow organizations to sell their product and make a profit.
Do you ship your products?
We ship our products across North America! Most shipping happens between Thanksgiving and Easter but we will ship during the warmer weather if you purchase a reusable insulated bag and ice pack.
Do you have retail stores outside of Stratford?
Our retail store at 55 Albert St. is a one and only! We make, package and sell everything right here in our building in Stratford. We do have a few stores in the area, including two in London and one in Kitchener-Waterloo that offer a selection of our most popular products.
Orders over 100lbs
Orders over 100 lbs use a different matrix to calculate shipping fees. If your order is over 100 lbs we will contact you by phone for the shipping fees. The shipping fees will be charged to your charge card.
I’m not a chocoholic - but my wife appreciates fine chocolate - and she claims that this place is the finest in the land - well worth the drive as a destination spot......

Years ago when I was in Teachers' College, I used to walk to Thompson Candies to get a treat to take home to my dad. A generation later, Rheo Thompson offers that same high-quality mouth-watering chocolate. Just entering the building is an aromatic treat.

A magical place filled with delicious chocolate. It smells incredible in here. The staff is friendly and efficient. The mint smoothies, coconut clusters, and almond crisps are the best! We had mint smoothies as our wedding favours and let’s say our guests were not disappointed.
