Sweeter Than Chocolate Filming Locations

Most parts of the film were lensed in British Columbia, the westernmost province of Canada that lies between the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The picturesque mountains, national parks, and ancient temperate rainforests are the natural attractions of this region. It is also home to cities that are a diverse melting pot of many cultures.

Over the years, British Columbia has served as the filming spot for several romantic Hallmark movies, such as ‘Personally Yours.’ The location is preferred for shooting because of the favorable climate, tax incentives, seasoned technicians as well as stunning locations. As per reports, the movie was filmed in November and December 2022. Now, here are all the details about the specific filming sites.

Vancouver, British Columbia

‘Sweeter Than Chocolate’ was filmed extensively in Vancouver, one of the most populated cities in British Columbia. As per reports, the production was handled by a vertically-integrated production company called Front Street Pictures at 1950 Franklin Street. The city is a stunning blend of skyscrapers and scenic mountains. Stanley Park, English Bay, Cathedral Grove, and the Capilano Suspension Bridge are among the prominent tourist spots in Vancouver.

Moreover, it is one of the largest locations for movie and TV production in North America. The port city easily stands in for New York and LA, which helps filmmakers with a limited budget. The cast and crew members of the Hallmark production had a fun time shooting the lighthearted romantic comedy film.


As the film was shot during the late months of 2022, the cast and crew had to shoot in the chilly weather with the support of warm and fuzzy jackets. Apart from ‘Sweeter Than Chocolate,’ Vancouver has hosted the production of several Christmas-themed films such as ‘A Very Vintage Christmas,’ ‘A Royal Romance,’ ‘Holiday Date,’ ‘A Sweet Christmas Romance,’ and ‘Merry Liddle Christmas.’
