Beschle Chocolatier Suisse

This post is long overdue…postponed by our recent/temporary move out West.

Over the summer, someone contacted me from a chocolatier in Switzerland–Beschle Chocolatier Suisse. He introduced me to his line of chocolates and offered to send me a sampling of their offerings. I was not sure what to expect, but was delighted to receive a magnificent package with these exquisite chocolates inside. The art and packaging are of course always on my mind. These obviously pass the test of fine design.

The bars are tasty indeed. While I prefer a pure d. chocolate bar, these bars had wonderfully subtle flavors inclusive of Montelimar nougat, pistachio, and so on. My all-time favorite was the d. chocolate bar infused with coarse salt–Grand Cru Trinitario au Fleur de Sel et Pistaches. Perfection.

Robert and I had difficulty pacing ourselves with the covered almonds. They were gone before we knew it. I love their rustic texture and soft crunch.

Each of these other items were tasty as well, but I would recommend the boxes of filled chocolates and truffles as gifts. To spoil yourself, the almonds and fleur de sel bar are luxurious and my top choices.

  1. Nancy, did you do the photography of these bars/sweets? Amazing. Let me give an additional shout-out to Biagio in DC. Nancy got me onto them and I have become an addict. My mouth is already watering, thinking of those chocolate-covered almonds. Personally, I think nuts and chocolate were made for each other.
