Chocolaterie near Morges/Rolle

My daughters birthday is tomorrow and she would like something chocolate. I haven't found anything in the groceries stores that really suits my fancy (and I can get Lindt in the US). I really miss my Vosges Chocolate, having withdrawals for those $6 candy bars...lol..our favs http://www.vosgeschocolate.com/produ...tic_candy_bars and http://www.vosgeschocolate.com/produ...tic_candy_bars .

Seems like we should be able to find something fun here. I probably should have just ordered her something, but it would be nice to go in some where and let her pick something fun.

No blasphemy meant against Swiss chocolate...chocolate is very personal.

Re: Chocolaterie near Morges/Rolle

For a trip out - round about (or less than) an hours drive away:

http://www.la-gruyere.ch/en/navpage-...FR-120165.html

http://www.cailler.ch/en/Chocolaterie/Information.aspx

Then afterwards, time permitting, a visit to the picturesque, fortified hill village of Gruyere, for a traditional fondue Fribourgoise (motie-motie).

What could be better? ..... loads of yummy chocolate, plenty of melted cheese, followed by an hours car journey on a warm day!

You might also want to check out Rapp in Prangins as well, http://www.confiserie-rapp.ch. They also have a chocolate school and laboratory which can be visited for chocolate connasseurs. May or may not be appropriate based on the age of your daughter.

Is he teetering on divine because of his being or his chocolate? We will have to drive over!

We did both of these a few weeks ago. It was a great day and a lot of fun. We went cause the kids wanted to go, but I can't buy Callier on a normal basis as I boycott Nestle. Just placed a Vosges order for myself for Mother's Day, a little indulgence is always welcome.

Re: Chocolaterie near Morges/Rolle

when you have a chance, take a walk around lausanne. there is a great little chocolaterie near st. francois and it is delicious. forgot the name but a cute little shop near la duree that would seem a special place for a little girl to pick out something special.

Oooh yes! That's Chocolats Blondel right next door to the Laduree. An inspired positioning of shops IMHO. Fab macaroons and fab chocolates

Re: Chocolaterie near Morges/Rolle

Hello!

There is another great chocolate store in Lausanne, which is called Anghern, it's close to Bel Air. But it is rather expensive.

Then there is a great private chocolaterie in Crissier (suburb of Lausanne) - where they make custom chocolate figures. I once got chocolate roosters made there, it is a very sweet family run business by Vincent Kuonen (rue de la Blancherie 8).

Re: Chocolaterie near Morges/Rolle

Hi guys,

A the weekend I went to Maier in Morges to buy some chocolates for a client. They seemed to go down well and presented nicely in a little box... Next time am going to try a different one to compare!
