Goods from Many Bakery & Cafe
Vancouver, BC | Many Bakery (2150 Fir Street) is taking inspiration from two popular Asian snacks for its creations from the Greater Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival this year. Titled Strawberry Pocky Forever and Smooth Like Better, each flavor features premium French Valrhona chocolate and is available for two weeks during the festival, from January 15 to February 14, 2022.
“The Hot Chocolate Festival is always a highlight for us,” says Betty Hung, who co-owns Many Bakery with her brother Jacky Hung. “We love seeing families come with their kids, friends and loyal customers. There’s just something so nostalgic about hot chocolate. Our flavors this year are based on two of our favorite snacks, pocky and crisps. They really are snacks in a drink!
Available for take-out only, the two flavors of hot chocolate from Many Bakery include:
Strawberry Pocky Forever
Available: January 15 to 31, 2022
Inspired by the popular Japanese snack Strawberry Pocky, this sipping chocolate features Valrhona strawberry couverture chocolate infused with a hint of sweet rose.
Served with Many Bakery’s Homemade Strawberry Pocky – best enjoyed when dipped in this strawberry and rose chocolate.
Soft as butter

Inspired by the popular Korean snack “Honey Butter Potato Chip”, this hot chocolate features a caramelized honey butter sauce mixed with Valrhona Dulcey 35% blond chocolate. It is served with potato chips flavored with caramelized cultured butter and local honey.
Many Bakery has hired local branding agency Glasfurd & Walker to create custom mug sleeves for its hot chocolates this year, adding a fun element to its flavors.
