Sweetest Street in the World
With history stretching back to the Roman Empire, and contemporary recognition as the largest metropolitan on the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is a world leader on fronts ranging from science to business and even fashion. It also has also earned a reputation for having an unparalleled chocolate obsession. Ever since Spanish explorers to the Americas first introduced cocoa beans to their European counterparts, Catalans have craved chocolatey confections with an indisputable zeal. And perhaps nowhere captures the spirit of this infatuation better than Carrer Petritxol--a narrow street that may be the sweetest of its kind in the world. Filled with chocolate shops, patisseries, and granges serving hot cocoa and churros, it’s a favorite of both locals and tourists alike. And while a winter stroll down this chocolate-lover’s’ dream destination is a not-to-be-missed experience, Barcelonans hardly confine their chocolate consumption to a single street. In fact, zChocolat’s exclusive online collection of fine French chocolates have become a popular option for those seeking truly exceptional gourmet gifts. Made using only single-origin cocoa butters and all natural ingredients, each zChocolat creation is a luxurious indulgence showcasing the best ingredients from around the world combined with time-honored European chocolate-making techniques.
