“Excelsior Chocolate Degustation Chocolat au Lait Fleur de Sel” is manufactured in the French town of Perpignan. Perpignan has 110.000 inhabitants and can be found in the South Western part of France directly on the border to Spain.
Fleur de Sel is salt from the sea. It’s included in the chocolate but the taste is not too strong. The cocoa amounts 30 percent. Excelsior offers a pleasant taste of milk chocolate. The flavour is not too bad. Only at the end a slight taste of sea salt is recognizable.
“Chocolat noir, eclat de caramel” is a fabulous chocolate creation from the French chocolate manufacturer and Biscuiterie et Chocolaterie “Real Chocolate”.
The home of this chocolate can be found in the town of “Colayrac”, in the South Western part of the country.
Unfortunately I have no informations about the history of this chocolate brand, and other interesting facts. All letterings on the chocolate wrapping are in French language, and even on their website I could not find a single English word. I suppose that’s the French pride not to use the English language.
However that may be, the chocolate product itseld does not need any letterings. Only the good taste counts, and a good taste is noticable indeed.
At first I have experienced a very dark, fine, and noble flavour. The chocolate has a cocoa content of 61,2 percent. Just perfect!
The chocolate is strewed with a lot of soft caramel pieces, as you can see in the photos. But the flavour is quite neutral and I was not able to taste a certain caramel flavour. Maybe this is the only negative point. The caramel ingredient has no big influene on the chocolate taste.
All things considered “Real Chocolat” is truely a fancy chocolate manufacturer with great dark chocolate. I am very glad that I was able to taste one of their products, and participate a little bit in the charming life of the sweet French chocolate world.
Ivoria is a delicious chocolate creation from France. It’s manufactured in the French town of Morteau. Morteau is located in the west of French, directly on the Swiss border, and has 6.500 inhabitants.
The official name of the chocolate bar is: Ivoria Inspirations Patissieres Facon Poire Belle Helene Chocolat Noir Fourre.
There is dark chocolate with a 57% content of cocoa as coating. The filling consists of Poire belle Hélène cream (pears).
The combination is something very new to me. I never had a pear chocolate in my life before. This makes it to a very special chocolate creation to me. But not only that. Also the taste is more than okay, and the tasting was a true enjoyment.
I bought this chocolate in the IKI supermarket of Vilnius (Lithuania).

Chocolat Bonnat Voiron Isere depuis 1884 pur beurre de cacao is a chocolate from France.
The chooclate is manufactured in the town of Voiron. The little town of 22.000 inhabitants is located in the South Western part of France, in the Rhône-Alpes region, close to the border of Switzerland.
It was in 1884 when Felix Bonnat started to do business with chocolates. He created the French praline which forms the basis of the Voiron “Pavé” (Praline Chunk), the recipe of which remains unchanged today.
The Bonnat family is one of Frenchs oldest family firm who is manufacturing chocolates.
The chocolate itself is really a masterpiece of chocolate production. There is a tender sweet taste of milk, and a bitter flavour in the background at the same time. This makes the chocolate to an unique chocolate experience. You can really taste the high quality of the chocolate on your tongue. Bonnat Chocolate is a wonderful unqiue composition of one of the best chocolates in the world.
“What’s good to the taste is good for the soul”, is the slogan of Bonnat: “Ce qui fait du bien au palais ne fait pas de mal á l’ame”. The chocolate has a content of 55% cacao.
“Lornet Chocolat Noir Superieur” was the name of the chocolate I received recently from France.
This chocolate bar is manufactured in the French town of Perpignan Cedex, Avenue Julien Panchot.
As I was not able to find any information about this kind of chocolate bar, I doubt this is something like a premium brand. But there is a promise on the wrapping: 50% de cacao.
The chocolate has a good dark taste, but the sweetness is just too much. I would say a medium chocolate bar without any exciting flavour experience.
