That is the question on the minds of all chocolate-lovers, which means that it is on everyone’s mind, because who doesn’t love chocolate? Despite the fact that at least one friend thinks I am on perpetual holiday, I have been using our travel time to undertake extensive research on the varying qualities of chocolates.
This does not refer to the average check-out shelf chocolate bar, but to handmade, in-shop chocolates in quaint little chocolateries in three locations in Canada, one previously unknown source of exquisite chocolates, two locations in France, two shops in Germany (and maybe more – I haven’t left Germany yet) and an ever-expanding number in Switzerland. This is the kind of research that just can’t stop. After all, chocolate shops in Italy, Austria and Belgium are still waiting our arrival.
I will be off-line tomorrow for travel (another exciting day on German highways!), but will report back on the chocolate question when I return to Switzerland.
I trained for it by judging cheesecake competitions. Now to test some more German chocolate, followed by Swiss. Ugh.
I’ve just moved to Switzerland and I’m slowly working my way through the chocolates here. I’m curious to hear your verdict on the great debate. 🙂
Hi Lisa and welcome to Switzerland! New chocolate aficionados are always welcome in this country and on this blog.
This sounds like a terribly difficult assignment. Are you sure you are up to it?
