Italy - A Chocolate Lover’s Paradise
Considered the top culinary destination for connoisseurs worldwide, Italy’s love-affair with fine food is legendary. Savory favorites such as spaghetti, lasagna, and salami are nearly synonymous with the country’s name, while sweet specialties such as gelato, tiramisu, and cannoli have earned devoted followings far from Italy’s famous seashores. Whether you’re exploring ancient artifacts in Rome, taking in the latest fashions in Milan, or appreciating the famous architecture of Naples, spectacular flavors are always close at hand. And of the many sugary confections enjoyed by Italians, sales suggest that chocolate is the number one favorite. With hundreds of years of chocolate history and a flair for fantastic combinations, it’s no wonder luxury chocolates are a top gift for special occasions.
Pure Ingredients for Better Chocolates
Italian affection for chocolate is rooted in an insistence on pure ingredients. Although the European Union has allowed products labeled as “chocolate” to contain a certain percentage of vegetable oils (such as palm oil) rather than pure cocoa butter since 2003, Italy has led the charge resisting this reclassification. zChocolat’s line of world-famous chocolate assortments has become a favorite among Italian purists because of a shared commitment to high-quality ingredients. Every zChocolat creation features only 100% pure cocoa butter--we never blend our chocolates with inferior oils. Our smooth, intensely-flavored couvertures feature only single-origin cocoa, including rich, pleasantly bitter Venezuelan cocoa dark chocolate pieces, and perfectly balanced, never-too-sweet Ivory Coast milk chocolate pieces. For a special treat, consider the Large Z chocolate, which boasts rare Bolivian chocolate with a uniquely nuanced flavor. No matter which chocolate you choose, every zChocolate product is made with all-natural ingredients and is preservative free, guaranteeing an unparalleled flavor experience.

Canadians increasingly sophisticated chocolate purchases put a premium on gifts that can be customized to the occasion and are delivered with a sense of style. zChocolat’s unique holiday collections meet Canadian expectations for both exceptional French chocolate and elegant delivery.

Unparalleled Piedmont Hazelnuts
Hazelnut praline features prominently in several of zChocolat’s most requested recipes, including their signature Z chocolate where it is layered with a decadent sweet-salty caramel. In order to provide the best flavors possible, zChocolat relies exclusively on Nocciola del Piemonte -- hazelnuts from the Piedmont region of Italy. Widely considered the finest variety in the world because of their gentle flavor and strict agricultural regulations, the superiority of Piedmont hazelnuts is enhanced even more through our processes of slow-roasting and careful grinding.
