The Best Chocolate! Where in the World to Get it!

The best chocolate shouldn’t be that hard find, right?

Well, when we live in a world where every corner we turn, there it is!

We realize that being choosy can be the difference between a mediocre indulgence to a forget-where-we-are-for-a-moment experience!

Where to Get the Best Chocolate!

Where to find the best chocolate

Isn’t it funny how our cravings for chocolate tend to increase exponentially around Halloween, Christmas-time and Valentine’s Day?

Also, the older I get, the more snobby I am about the quality of it.

As a result, I’m just not willing to “break the diet” for Russell Stover anymore.

So, if I’m going to indulge, I want to bite into decadence!

Our Best Chocolate Reader Poll

In order to get accurate data, I polled our readers!

My question was, “Tell us about the absolute BEST chocolate that you’ve ever tasted, and where you got it from! It can be anywhere around the world! Or it could be in Frederick!”

Cara F. said, “Perfect Truffle.  Super good and hand made. Soooo good and various different kinds.”

The Best Chocolate! Switzerland & Germany

Cristi H. says “Of course with my mother being from Switzerland, I’m a confection snob. So Lindt is always #1 for me.”

Shelly R. “Actually the hands down best chocolate I have EVER had is at Rheb’s in Catonsville, Md… on holidays there is usually a line around the corner! They have been featured on the news in Baltimore… they are amazing! The dark chocolate is their best imo especially the truffles (milk chocolate is extra sweet while the dark chocolate is sweeter than most-here)”

Elizabeth N. “My daughter was in Wisconsin and picked up Kohler chocolates. I have never tasted a turtle as amazing as the one that is made by Kohler. Wait til you taste their chocolate.”

Needless to say, I LOVE having personal recommendations!

Best Chocolatiers in the World

Also, I found a great article by National Geographic called “The 10 Best Chocolatiers in the World“.

The chocolatiers in this list hail from Paris, France to Chicago, Illinois!

Naturally, they all look TA DIE FOR!!!

So, it really is OK to indulge a little – after all, there ARE health benefits to eating chocolate (antioxidants, anyone?)!

I mean, life is just too short to eat bad chocolate!

And, if that’s not a famous quote…well, it should be!

So, did we miss any?

If so, tell us your faves in the comments!

  1. Good morning. Thank you for the restaurants in Frederick. You left a very important amazing chocolate off of your list one that I didn’t know of until recently. My daughter was in Wisconsin and picked up Kohler chocolates. I have never tasted a turtle as amazing as the one that is made by Kohler, yes, Kohler makes a lot of product for your home but wait to you taste their chocolate.
