Best chocolate brand in the world

I look forward to learning different once in Switzerland, but for now Pierre Marcolini is the top of chocolate for me - he makes it seem more like an art in fact.

Yeah . . . I like Marcolini too.

In terms of bars, rather than delicate confections, I like Amadei and El Rey.

Just to plug a London chocolatier too . . . Paul Young.

Re: Best chocolate brand in the world

@whostolemy cheese,

If you wanted a discussion about high quality chocolate, you may now have realised that this is the wrong place.

The best chocolate brand in the world is whatever I've got laying around in the flat when I need a fix.

Re: Best chocolate brand in the world

There's no such thing as a Best chocolate brand in the world.
There's only a thing called "I prefer this one or that one and why, after all these years, you still don't know that I .... bla bla bla.... "

Re: Best chocolate brand in the world

I love a good bar of cadbury but I wouldnt say no to a nice box of Godiva or Debauve and Gallais...almost guilt (sugar) free, and zero preservatives. The French got it right there. nom nom...

Re: Best chocolate brand in the world

Not a huge fan of chocolate, but I did enjoy Marcolini until he sold out to Nestle. Now quite partial to Felchlin.

Ouch, now that you told me this, it'll never be the same again to walk into one of his establishments in Brussels and choose something. I love the small boxes with 20 or so miniature bon bons (i realize this may make me sound like Peggy Bundy...). Small but very tasty!

So its the brand that is important not the chocolate?

Re: Best chocolate brand in the world

Had a dark chocolate kit kat in London over the weekend. Yum.

I'm also quite partial to venchi chocolates.

It's the total experience... so also the little box they come in, the establishment you buy it at, etc.
