belgian chocolate in lausanne area

Apologies to Swiss folks here, but I am going back to US and everyone wants to try Belgian chocolates instead of Swiss. Is there a place I can get it in the Lausanne area? I tried Migros, but they didn't seem to have any, or at least I couldn't find any advertising their Belgian origin. I would appreciate any help finding them.

Thanks.

Re: belgian chocolate in lausanne area

Hi cptncool

Not sure if they are still there but a few years back there was a Leonidas shop in Lausanne - I haven't been back there for a while so no idea if it's still there but the chocolates are worth trying.

Now the question is where . I'm not 100% sure but I'm pretty sure it was in the Metropole 2000 centre (or one of those centres that are all together (linked) between Bel Air and Place Chauderon on the upper level (not flon)

Good luck and please report back if you find it

Cheers
Nats

Re: belgian chocolate in lausanne area

Captain -

Why not take some of the Blondel chocolate with cayenne pepper back? It is EXCELLENT and spicy enough to make your nose run (I think it's the only spicy food available in Switzerland...). Very high quality chocolate and really unique with the cayenne - all I've ever been able to get in the US is chocolate desserts with jalapeno.

For Belgian chocolates, just mail order from Ruben's in Urbana, Illinois
http://www.rubenschocolates.com/. Very high quality stuff, and you don't have to spend valuable luggage space on it.
