My New Favorite Chocolate

BARRY CALLEBAUT JACQUES
Helene subs quite a bit in school and one day the topic came to chocolate. Her son lives in Belgium and sends chocolate home to her. The next time she subbed, she brought in a bar of this dark chocolate. It is great! Creamy and truly dark. Very rich, though, so my stomach hurt because I had too much.

Both of these pictures of the labels link to the manuafacturer's web site. For my gifts, you can google for an online retailer. Price is no object!


From the Jacques site:
In 1982, Jacques Chocolaterie was acquired by Stollwerck. To keep pace with the growing success of its products, the factory was repeatedly expanded, the last time in 2004.

At the end of the 19th century, when Belgium was in industrial and commercial euphoria, Antoine Jacques founded Jacques Chocolaterie in 1896.

In 2005, Jacques – whose key visual is a knight – and Callebaut – Barry Callebaut’s traditional brand for consumer products in Belgium – were merged to combine the best of two worlds: the name awareness of Jacques with the recognized quality of Callebaut inside. The result is a strong brand for anyone with a sweet tooth, distinguished by authenticity, a pioneering spirit and conviviality.

  1. I absolutely adore dark chocolate and it is much better for you than milk chocolate, less fat and a higher rate of antioxidants, plus it tastes soooooo good!
