The Art of Chocolate Perfected
France’s fondness for chocolate stretches back to the 1600’s when it was presented at court by foreign princesses marrying into the royal line. While young Anne of Austria brought chocolate as part of her dowry in 1615, the exotic delicacy didn’t truly grab the court’s imagination until 1643 when betrothed Spanish princess Maria Theresa gifted chocolate to her fiancé Louis XIV. Packaged in an ornate chest, the chocolate was perceived as a gift of exceptional value and quickly became a favorite of French nobility and a customary indulgence at the Palace of Versailles.From these aristocratic roots, chocolate has become a near national obsession with a total annual consumption approach 400,000 tons. French chocolate production has also earned renown for its rich flavor and outstanding quality. Typically made with less sugar and cream than in other European countries, many consider it the best chocolate in the world. Since 1999 zChocolat has continued this tradition of excellence and has become a favorite of locals and of Francophiles near and far.
Exceptional Easter Chocolates
Next to Christmas, Easter is the most important holiday season in France. Celebrated with great enthusiasm throughout the country, it has become associated with a number of traditions including extra reasons to enjoy chocolate. Stories of “flying bells” that return to churches on Easter morning carrying goodies for children and egg rolling contests give the season a special sense of celebration, while the local chocolate shops pull out all the stops. Throughout France, spring’s arrival finds store shelves brimming with both white and dark chocolate rabbits, chickens, eggs, and fish of all sizes, ready to be shared with friends and family. zChocolat captures the best of these traditions with their unique Easter Collection featuring miniature shaped chocolates (friture) and irresistible hazelnut pralines. Made from slow-roasted Piedmont hazelnuts and available in milk, dark, and white chocolate couvertures, the collection’s Easter pralines are an eagerly awaited seasonal favorite made even more festive with elegant special-edition packaging.

100% Pure Cocoa Butter
One of the hallmarks of French chocolate is its intense flavor. This is also reflected in a regional preference for dark chocolate, which accounts for roughly 30% of in-country consumption, a sharp contrast from the 5% average around the world. The strikingly robust flavor favored by French connoisseurs is best achieved using pure single origin cocoas, which can unfortunately be more difficult to find on the market. Many manufacturers cut costs by to mixing cocoa butter with other vegetable oils, resulting in a lower-quality product and muddled flavors. zChocolat, on the other hand, relies exclusively on 100% pure, never blended, cocoa butter to craft their world famous chocolate creations. In fact, each of Master Chocolatier Pascal Caffet’s recipes relies on couvertures made from single-origin cocoa beans boasting a guaranteed identifiable “vintage.” zChocolat’s creamy, perfectly balanced, milk chocolate heralds from the Ivory Coast, while their pleasantly bitter dark chocolate is the result of “Caranero Superior”- grade cocoa beans from Venezuela. Certain zChocolat creations even feature a special extra-dark chocolate made from rare Bolivian Trinitario beans for an unexpectedly complex flavor profile that’s became a favorite among France’s most dedicated dark chocolate aficionados.
Handcrafted Business Gifts
While corporate gifting is not a social requirement of doing business in France, some companies have found that locally produced gourmet goods are an excellent way to express appreciation to valued clients and recognize important achievements. Made in France using only high quality ingredients and flavorful single origin cocoas, zChocolat has become a go-to choice when making an impression matters most. The ability to add a personalized image or logo to the box, as well as the recipient’s name, makes customized gifting easy, while a unique VIP Membership offers enticing rewards without the hassle of minimum orders.
More than 30% of chocolate sales in France come around Christmastime.

Elaborate Christmas meals are spread with rich foods like roast goose, foie gras, oysters, and scallops. Desserts such as the traditional chocolate yule log cake take center stage across the country, while regional sweets, such as Provence’s 13 Desserts, meant to represent Christ and the 12 apostles, add meaning and flavor to the season. Gourmet gifts are also a common site during the season, with luxury chocolates acting as a particular favorite. Whether seeking out small assortments for Père Noël to leave in children’s shoes Christmas morning, packages of truffles to gift neighbors, elegant boxes perfect for sweethearts, or impressive bundles bursting with hundreds of chocolate pieces to share at large group gatherings, zChocolat simplifies holidays shopping.
