I have never been to the shop proper but I regularly “send” one of my Stratford friends with an order to pick up if they’re visiting their families and this does the trick. I highly recommend having a Stratford friend – everybody needs one, if only for Rheo Thompson runs. They’re also surprisingly easy to find in Toronto! And everyone who’s from Stratford knows what Rheo Thompson is – the name is pretty much etched on Stratford birth certificates.
You can also order directly online but who knows how much shipping would come to – chocolate is heavy, yo!
I usually put in an order for these two things:
* Milk Mint Smoothie Bar ($1.30 each)
* 1 lb. of Dark Mint Smoothies ($16.30)
The dark chocolate Mint Smoothies are small chocolates like the coveted caramel square you find in a Black Magic or Pot Of Gold box. The centre is creamy and oozing with quality chocolate. But it’s the Mint Smoothie Bar that really gets me hot and bothered.
This fiendish creation — by no means a diet food, it’s something like 300 calories, which I suppose is the same as a regular, subar quality chocolate bar — melts in your mouth upon contact. The craftsmanship is ridiculous on these things. It’s dangerous to order more than a few. I wish they made a dark chocolate Mint Smoothie Bars but I love them so much I’ll break my devotion to dark chocolate and settle for milk.
Now go make some Stratford friends! Listed in: The Most Sinfully Decadent…

As he lay dying at Stratford Hospital, I took a Smoothie, put it in a styrofoam coffee cup, left it a little while on the rad to soften, smushed it up, and eased it bit by bit into his mouth.
He died a happy man. ”

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.
