Brunberg Chocolate

Filed under: Finnish Chocolate — admin @ 7:34 pm

finlandBrunberg is a chocolate from Finland, which is produced in the town of Porvoo. Porvoo has 48.000 inhabitants, and can be found in the south of Finland.

The official name of the product is “Laktoositon Laktosfri Brunberg Tumma Mörk”. The chocolate bar has a weight of 150g.

Brunberg was founded by a bakerman called “A. W. Lindfors” 1871 in the town of Porvoo. In the following 20 years he was able to become the most successful producer of sweets in Finland. In 1928 the chocolate factory was bought by Lennart Brunberg.

My first experience of the chocolate was a lack of sweetness. I was shocked about a real tasteless chocolate.

After one minute the taste changed. There was still no sweetness to taste, but I was able to explore a unique and pleasant flavour of creamy chocolate.

The special thing about Brunberg Chocolate is the unique taste, which is a big contrast to other chocolates. At the beginning the chocolate seems to be quite hard to get used to it, but after a little while you are able to experience a pleasant taste which is so different from all the other chocolates.

It tastes like a cup of cappuccino without sugar. I am still impressed about such special kind of chocolate. Brunberg was really worth tasting.


  1. Just thought I’d drop by and offer some extra information where I can 🙂

    “The official name of the product is “Laktoositon Laktosfri Brunberg Tumma Mörk””

    There’s information here in both Finnish and Swedish, since both are official languages in Finland, and Porvoo has a lot of Swedish speaking people. “Laktoositon” and “Laktosfri” are simply “Lactose-free” in Finnish and Swedish, added information for lactose-intolerant people, and not really a part of the name of the product. “Tumma” and “Mörk” are, as well, simply “Dark” in the two languages. The name of the product would simply be Brunberg Tumma or Brunberg Mörk, depending on which language you want to use.

  2. Brunbergs mörka choklad är bland de bättre som jag köpte på Ålandsbåten.
    Har tyvärr inte hittat den i Linköping men fortsätter att leta.

  3. WE visited the town of Porvoo as tourists in th summer of 2008. Still vivid in my memory is the Brunberg Chocolate shop. Even more vivid is the exquisite taste of this Finish chocolate. I have tasted many different kinds of chocolate from different countries and this is by far the best I have ever had. The individually wrapped chocolate truffles are to “die for”. I just wish I could discover how I could mail order some. Does anyone know how I can?
