A visit in Switzerland without buying something sweet to bring home to the loved ones is unthinkable. There are so many Swiss chocolate factories with tradition and tasteful products that it is actually hard to decide what to buy.
Andrei was recently in Switzerland and brought us some delightful chocolate. He chose the Cailler Maison – and we enjoyed them.
He bought three boxes:
The Femina box has seven types of chocolate pralines (not 7 pieces, 7 types). And they were all amazing 😀
The red box, once opened looks like this:
Cailler Maison – Swiss chocolate
… but there are two layers of candies – 18 pieces in total 😀
They all taste the same – sort of a milk chocolate – really great! – but the whapsheet varies. No complaints here though – and the kid liked to choose one drawing or other.
Finally, the popcorn package was truly interesting. They are not popcorn – but special kind of chocolate. Lovely, sweet, different than those from the other three boxes.
I admit I liked the chocolate from the blue and red boxes more – they were more to my taste. But all of them tasted really good.
Now, to get a little context, imagine that the Cailler Maison makes chocolate since the beginning of the XX century. And that’s not something to be taken lightly. They have experience, they improved their recipes and their sweets are definitely a great choice for a souvenir from Switzerland. And, as a side note, this is not a paid post – I just loved their chocolate and wanted to share that with you – if you want to buy chocolate as a sweet souvenir from Switzerland. (And yes, there are many other famous companies that make great sweets, I tasted this one this time 😉 ).
