Chocolate is the kind of sweet food you can eat at any time of the day. Yes, even before breakfast, and we’re not ashamed to admit it. If you’re like us and you have a true appreciation for chocolate, we’re about to do you one better. These three countries are known for their expert chocolate-making, so you should definitely go there when you get the chance!
You may have heard that Swiss chocolate is like heaven on earth, and the rumors are true. Interestingly enough, they’ve managed to create incredible chocolate even though cacao beans don’t really grow over there. If you’d like to try it for yourself, the most well-known Swiss chocolate brand is Lindt.
Belgian chocolate is so good that people travel there just to try it! Apparently, there are over 2,000 chocolate shops in the entire country, so you really can’t avoid it. Belgian chocolate sets itself apart by its pungent aroma, which is caused by the fact that they only cool it at the very end of the production process.
The roots of chocolate itself owe a great deal of gratitude to Ecuador. It’s well-known that Ecuador is where some of the world’s best cacao beans are found, producing 63% of the world’s “Fina Aroma” cacao beans. For a long time, they mainly exported cacao beans to other countries, but lately they’ve begun to start making it themselves.
