Villars Chocolate

Filed under: Swiss Chocolate — admin @ 8:12 pm

switzerlandAfter quite a long time I have found a chocolate bar from Switzerland again. The chocolate factory called “Villars” is located in Fribourg. A town with a mainly French population.

Villars Maitre Chocolatier Suisse exists since 1901. As their website is completely in French language, I have no additional informations about the companies history.

My Villars chocolate bar has the label “Larmes de Kirsch”. It’s bittersweet chocolate with a liquid filling of cherry spirits. The wrapping looks quite alright. It seems the chocolate wont taste too cheap. In fact the price in the chocolate shop was not too cheap anyway.

My first impression is a noble taste of bittersweet chocolate. The content of cocoa amounts 53 percent. This is the perfect ratio. The taste is just perfect. After a while the cherry spirits comes through the chocolate and I have a nice experience of the finest cherry spirits. It’s quite warm running down my throat. Lovely!

Yes, I like Villars. It’s difficult to stop eating if you once have started. Usually I am not such a fan of liquid chocolate fillings, but Villars made a really good job. Of course a chocolate experience of more than 100 years pays well in this case.

Finest spirits made of cherries and great bittersweet chocolate. I really love it! Well done French speaking Swissmen! 🙂


  1. Sorry for correcting, but I cannot ignore the mistakes you made. Information is an uncountable noun, so it can never be plural. The sentence would be correct this way: „I have no additional information about the company’s history.”

  2. Since I am from Switzerland I am very familiar with Villars Chocolats. Always been enjoyed by the whole family with much pleasure. Would like to know if you also have Larmes de Kirsch chocolates with the Milk Chocolate versus the bittersweet?
    Sure hope so!!!!!!! Thank you.

  9. We love the Villars chocoloat a l’ancienne, but the store where we used to buy it has closed and now we don’t know where to buy this wonderful chocolate in our area. We live in Northern Kentucky, near Cincinnati, Ohio, our zip code is 41017.

    I hope you can help us find a local store for this product.

    Thank you!
