Cailler baking chocolate

In case anyone is interested for their baking projects, Cailler (Nestlé) has launched four chocolate bars in a 200g format for baking.

Milk, White, Dark 64% and Dark 80%

Pricing seems to be CHF 3.95 per bar.

Re: Cailler baking chocolate

Thank-you, but hasn't it always been available? Been using it for 10 years now.

Still not 100%, which is the norm.

Not sure at all since I am not a baker. It was top of page on the latest flyer from our local Nestlé store. The way it was presented it "seemed" to be new. Maybe they are just promoting it or maybe just new to the store??

I remember that there were some questions about baking chocolate a while back so I decided to post the "news".

Already bought a few bars of dark64% and a white, they're great for baking. My kids found and ate the white one as if they didn't have a lot of other sweets laying around...... SoI guess that one was good too.

I like their vintage packaging btw.

Re: Cailler baking chocolate

For baking things like soft cookies I just use Migros budget chocolate, the stuff in the green and white packaging

Yep. I use Lidl finCARRE for baking, 59 Rappen/100g.


Actually I also get my Cailler Crémant at Lidl, that's when they give me a box of 13 for Fr. 14.95 (that's Fr 1.15/100g, quiet a difference to the regular price and when this is your "house-chocolate"). They do that every few months, actually you can tell when: When ever I mention stuff of Lidl, I only know because this promotion made me go there.

Re: Cailler baking chocolate

I always have a couple of bars in the fridge door for when I fancy a little bit of choc with a cup of tea. My fave is COOP cheap chocolate orange, it has candied orange peel pieces in it and is nicer than some of the expensive choc orange around.

Re: Cailler baking chocolate

aligros has also a variety of bulk chocolate products for baking (with brands like barry callebaut etc), but not necessarily cheaper than the sutff already mentionned

Re: Cailler baking chocolate

Anything less than 100% requires modifying the recipe.

Unless your recipe calls for something other than 100%. I have several calling for semi sweet chocolate (usually somewhere between 50 and 70).

I guess I've always missed the 200g size when looking for it. I've only ever bought the 100 g size.

Re: Cailler baking chocolate

Sadly Cailler isn’t safe for those of us with Celiac disease. Of course I found that out the hard way and after already falling in love with their blueberries and nuts bar
