The chocolates of Ildefonso are something very special, and a true delicacy for nougat and chocolate lovers.
Ildefonso chocolates are manufactured since 1880.
The owner of a Viennese chocolate factory spent his holiday in Spain. During that holiday, he has visited the church of Toledo, which was dedicated to the Bishop St. Ildefonso.
The owner of the chocolate factory entered the church, and received the idea of a new chocolate creation in his head, like it was sent directly from heaven. Seven layers of dark and light nougat with a coating of delicate chocolate was his holy chocolate vision in this certain church.
Immediately when he was back in Vienna, he told his confectioners of the chocolate vision. They tried to create the best of his idea, and the result was “Ildefonso”.
Ildefonso was a tremendous success in that time, and is still sold with great profit until today. This proves the quality of Ildefonso. Truely a divine vision of chocolate which brought fame, success, and glory to the Viennese chocolate factory of Victor Schmidt.
I can confirm that Ildefonso is really a wonderful chocolate creation. It has such a tender character that it’s melting easily on the tongue. A true enjoyment of dark and light nougat, coated with the finest Viennese chocolate.
