While cocoa was originally cultivated in the Americas, it was the Spanish explorer Don Cortés who first brought cocoa beans to Europe in 1528. Unlike many other foods brought back from Spanish colonies to the home country, chocolate drinks were quickly embraced. Especially once sweetened with cane sugar which the Spanish were also the first to popularize in Europe, the drink became practically ubiquitous. In fact, it was widely remarked that “for the Spanish, chocolate is what tea is for the British.” And while the popularity of chocolate would slowly spread, reaching most corners of Europe by the 1650’s, it would remain a readily recognizable national symbol of Spain for many years to come. Over the ensuing centuries, chocolate has continued to hold a special place in Spanish hearts. And while the country is not currently a major producer of chocolate gifts, Spanish households continue to enjoy purchasing chocolate goods from other European countries with an increasingly pronounced preference for luxury chocolates.
The distinctively rich flavor of fine French chocolate has made it a popular choice for gift giving in Spain. This is true for both social occasions and business occasions, although the presentation style varies slightly between the two. For example, when meeting socially, gifts are typically presented at the beginning of an encounter. Chocolates, truffles, and other candies make exceptional host/hostess gifts when visiting a home, while smaller assortments are perfect for giving children who are also often given small presents on social occasions. Conversely, business gifts in Spain are generally exchanged at the end of an encounter, preserving a sense of propriety. In both cases, beautiful packaging and customized details add impact and meaning to any gift-giving occasion. zChocolat’s ability to include an image to the box, engrave a customer’s name, and enclose a personalized message make meeting these expectations easier than ever.
Not only do the Spanish have a unique claim on cocoa itself, Spain is also home to the world’s most sought after almonds. Rounder and more luscious than their American counterparts, Valencia almonds are beloved for their flavor and nutritional qualities. Naturally sweet without any of the bitterness sometimes associated with almonds, they are excellent on their own and decidedly sublime when coupled with the world’s best chocolate. Master chocolatier Pascal Caffet has incorporated Valencia almonds into many of zChocolat’s most requested recipes. Whether roasted and crushed into a sandy-sweet praline, minced and covered with smooth West African milk chocolate or intense Venezuelan dark chocolate, or even served as a sumptuous praline spread, Valencia almonds add unparalleled flavor and texture. zChocolat’s commitment to incorporating carefully-sourced high quality ingredients is part of the reason they have become one of Spain’s favorite choices for luxury European chocolate. Whether it’s Valencia almonds, Piedmont Hazelnuts, Spanish peanuts, or Dutch sesame seeds, every component of our widely acclaimed confections has been specifically selected to deliver a truly gourmet experience.
Located on the Balearic Sea, Barcelona is at the heart of Spain’s Catalonia region. Located roughly 600 kilometers from Spain’s capital, Madrid, it is home to the famous Magic Fountains as well as miles of beautiful beaches. Tucked among Barcelona’s many museums and galleries is a must-see attraction for anyone with a serious love for chocolate. The Museu de la Xocalata, or Chocolate Museum, explores the history of Chocolate in Europe, including Spain’s pivotal role. Filled with the sights and smells of chocolate (including Barcelona’s famous architecture recreated as chocolate miniatures), it’s a sensory indulgence sure to leave visitors craving the delicious flavors of handcrafted European chocolates.
