10 Best Swiss Chocolates
There are a few things that come to mind when we think of Switzerland. Delicious premium chocolate is probably one of the top three things on everyone’s list. Many companies have been making Swiss chocolate for centuries, combining tested techniques with modern methods. Along with Belgian chocolate, Swiss chocolate is considered some of the best European chocolate. With such a long history as the foremost chocolatiers, there are numerous Swiss brands and lines for every chocolate lover out there. We’ll narrow things down using our list of best Swiss chocolate brands and selections. We’ve based our choices on the criteria of taste, consumer experience, and price per bar.
10. Lindt Classic Recipe Milk Chocolate Bar
As the name suggests, this is a simple, classic chocolate bar. But don’t let the simplicity fool you; this is still a high-quality bar that offers consumers a smooth, rich taste. The chocolate is soft for an easy and satisfying chewing experience, and is high in cocoa content to give you maximum flavor. Most users are completely satisfied with this bar, though in rare cases some received chocolate that appeared to be too old. The shipping price can also impact its overall value if you aren’t careful.
9. Extra Large Toblerone Swiss Milk Chocolate
Toblerone is an iconic brand and a longtime favorite among tourists and travelers. This particular iteration gives you larger than usual triangular wedges of standard chocolate with a smooth and creamy taste that includes hints of almond. Most users are extremely happy both with the overall taste of the Toblerone bar, and the nostalgia factor. However, in some rare cases, the chocolate arrived melted. One or two consumers reported that the bar may not have used the same recipe that it did some years ago.
8. Milkboy Swiss Alpine Milk Chocolate
Milkboy may not be as well-known as some other Swiss brands, but that doesn’t stop it from being chocolate of exceptional quality. The makers use sustainable UTZ cocoa to achieve a smooth, robust taste in each bar. There are subtle hints of vanilla bean in each bite, and the lecithin used is sunflower rather than the more common soy. While most users are highly impressed and rightly so, this is definitely premium chocolate at a premium price that may be prohibitive for some.
7. Toblerone Swiss Milk Chocolate Bar
Another product from Toblerone that is a smaller cousin to the extra large bar above. This bar still gives you the same quality, smooth taste but in a more compact and affordable package. These bars are ideal for the occasional chocolate eater who wants some premium taste without having to store a lot of chocolate. Most users are happy with the quality and value of the product, but for a few consumers, the bar is a bit on the small side.
6. Milka Chocolate with Chopped Hazelnut
Although many people now associate Milka with Germany, as the chocolate has been produced there for over a century, this famous brand got its start in Switzerland. This particular batch features a smooth tasting chocolate with hazelnuts, although the brand produces several varieties. The only real complaints users had were that packaging didn’t always match, and in some cases, the chocolate was melted upon arrival. Most were satisfied with the quality and taste, however. The high quality of Milka bars means that they can be rather expensive when shipping costs are added.
5. Lindt Swiss Bittersweet Chocolate Bar
This product gives you 4 bars of classic chocolate with a rich, bittersweet taste. Keep in mind that unlike many choices on our list, this one is indeed bittersweet, which may not appeal to all consumers. Most users that know bittersweet is what they’re after seem to love this chocolate. In rare cases, users reported that the chocolate arrived stale, but this is not the norm. The price is a bit expensive, but you do get 4 bars for the price.
4. Swiss Delice Extra Creamy Milk Chocolate
These bite-sized pieces from Swiss Delice are perfect for getting a quick chocolate fix on the go or snacking around the house. The taste and texture of these chocolate candies are extra smooth and creamy for a real melt-in-your-mouth quality. Most users describe only positive experiences with them, though the price is prohibitive for some. However, at only three cents per gram, we find them to be of good value overall.
3. Lindt Swiss Luxury Selection Boxed Chocolate
This variety box has something to please everyone. With a wide selection of various chocolate types and a full range of tastes from mild to strong, it’s a way to sample all of the skill that true Swiss chocolatiers have to offer. Although users love the premium taste and quality, the price can be somewhat high. We recommend this one only for those who are truly looking to sample the best Swiss chocolate.
2. Lindt Excellence Bar, 85% Cocoa Extra Dark Chocolate
This exceptional bar from Lindt is one of the best Swiss chocolate experiences for a variety of reasons. You can purchase it in varying percentages of cocoa for a taste that is as mild or robust as you’d like. Additionally, it is a very smooth, delicate chocolate with hints of dried fruits to enhance the flavor. Almost all users are in love with the flavor of this bar, but it proved to be a bit bitter for a handful of consumers. An excellent price per bar and free shipping add to the value.
1. Toblerone Swiss Dark Chocolate with Honey and Almond Nougat
It’s very difficult for us to give the number one spot to just one brand or bar. But it must be done and in this case, the spot for the best Swiss chocolate goes to another fantastic Toblerone product. This one provides chocolate fans with several bars of rich, dark chocolate that has notes of honey and almond to act in perfect harmony with the cocoa. Users have nothing bad to say about this chocolate, and neither do we, though the price may be high for some, as this is essentially a bulk buy.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this look through quality Swiss chocolates as much as we’ve enjoyed bringing it to you.
