Counting Sheep: The Creation of Sophie the Sheep

Sophie the Sheep plushie toy

Sophie the Sheep is a pretty special sheep: She's a baaa-utiful cuddle buddy from the tip of her squishy nose to her fluffy tail (and what a fluffy tail!).

But that's not what makes Sophie really special.

Sophie started out an original sketch by Carrolyn, Merchandising & Visual Coordinator at Purdys Chocolatier. Carrolyn chose the colour of Sophie's velvety skin and soft wool, the prettiest button eyes and exactly where each stitch that makes up Sophie's nose and eyelashes had to be placed.

We think Sophie's sketch is not so much a sketch as it is a portrait—doesn't it look just like Sophie posed for a picture?

Sophie also stars on the cover of our vintage-inspired Waiting for Spring Tin.

You might also spot Finnegan the plushy bunny on the tin so if you're looking for a cute, sweet, heartwarming and so very delicious gift for someone this Easter, grab the Waiting for Spring Tin and make it come to life with Finnegan and Sophie.

Create a special custom bar wrap at select Purdys shops

No, really, we mean it. It’s a wrap.

A customized, personalized, unique chocolate bar wrap with a special message and photo from you.

We dare you to find a sweeter Stocking Stuffer or last-minute gift anywhere else.

Right?

Here’s how you can get yourself a custom bar wrap:

1. Drop by a participating Purdys shop. Currently, we have the custom bar wrap available in BC at Pacific Centre, Coquitlam Centre and Tsawwassen Mills; in Alberta at Chinook Centre and Edmonton City Centre; and in Ontario at Vaughan Mills and Rideau Centre.

2. Choose a background for your wrap, upload your photo and write your message.

3. Print your wrap and #BeAGiftHero this Christmas.

Got your gifts sorted already? Custom bar wraps also make the best birthday, anniversary, graduation and just-because gifts.

Become a Gift Hero in just a few clicks!

Be a gift hero this Christmas!

As the official chocolate of Christmas (and the unofficial chocolate of “OMG THANK YOU BEST GIFT EVER”), we know a thing or two about what it takes to #BeAGiftHero.

It all starts, as everything does at Purdys, with 100% sustainable cocoa.

Because there’s nothing like the feeling of giving someone a great gift that you know is also doing great things for the cocoa farmers that helped create it.

Our 100% sustainable cocoa helps cocoa farmers in rural communities gain access to education, clean water, medical supplies and many other community-driven initiatives.

So you’re a gift hero in more ways than one, and that’s extra awesome.

Check out our Gift Hero Guide right here.

Plus the more you buy, the more you'll save with our Volume Discounts.

And don't forget about our free shipping over $65+ anywhere in Canada!
