Geisha Chocolate

Filed under: Finnish Chocolate — admin @ 8:38 pm

finlandGeisha is a chocolate from Finland, which is manufactured by the Fazer chocolate factory.

Fazer was founded in 1891 by Karl Otto Fazer, a son of Swiss immigrants, in Helsinki. In that time Finland was part of the Russian empire, and not a free and independent nation. Since his childhood the son of a Swiss furrier was interested in chocolates and coffee. He always wanted to learn how to make good chocolate.

So Karl Otto Fazer learned how to make chocolates in Paris, Berlin and Saint Petersburg. When he was 25 years old, he returned home to Finland and opened his first coffee house. But his true love was the manufacture of chocolate. Three years later he opened his chocolate factory which exists until today.

Geisha is made of tender milk chocolate and filled with a soft and crispy hazelnut cream. The chocolate tastes quite alright. I think it’s a bit too sweet, could be more cacao included, and there is too much milk inside.  Not a product which throws me out of my shoes, but a sweet and nice enjoyment for in between.

  1. I’d like to try Finnish chocolate it looks nicer than the boring British chocolate I’m used to, the wrapper even looks nicer, and the shape the chocolate is made in too. I wish the British were more creative…..

  2. were I come from I can get lots and lots of British chocolate, Cadbury or Nestlé some chocolate from Lidle the German supermarket, that chcolate swiss brand linte or something like that. Or some supermarket brands it all tastes the same and is annoying and boring. Apart from the german chocolate it’s nice but I don’t go to Lidle often because it’s too far away, and because the one nearest to me is suppose to be ‘cursed’ or so my granny says. well that’s because evey time we go to that oje a few days later my mother end up in hospital with a clot. my granny is supersticious. Lidles is cool.

  7. I’m surprised you rated this lower than the other Finnish chocolates. I live in Finland and chocolate is one of my soft spots. Geisha is probably my favourite Finnish chocolate. All Fazer made are really good, they are also quite innovative, all kinds of tastes. The one with salty liquorice filling is also heavenly, but not for munching. Same with Geisha, really. Actually, all fazer chocolates are something you eat little at a time. Most Finns (to my experience) buy Marabou (swedish) for munching, it has more caramel-like taste. I recommend peanut Marabou. 🙂

  19. I really like Fazer products. I also like the Panda chocolate with Mint filling. One of my favorite ones is Geisha with orange. Very good 🙂 Didn’t know that they don’t sell them in many countries.

  22. I am also surprised you did not like this one more.

    To me, this is one of the best widely distributed Scandinavian chocolates.

    As you have discovered, Marabou rules supreme among plain milk chocolates in Scandinavia, but I think Fazer’s Geisha and Wienernougat are the best ones with a filling. I really recommend Wienernougat, it’s very addictive. There are also a few other Marabou chocolates you should try. My personal favourites are Marabou Frukt & Mandel and Marabou Nötchoklad (used to be called Schweizernöt).
