The French take great pride in their sardines, but here in the U.S. they are not quite so popular. That said, these “sardines” will appeal to chocolate lovers of all ages, even if they wouldn’t touch an actual sardine with a ten-foot pole!
Who came up with the idea of chocolate sardines? Chocolat Michel Cluizel, a French family-owned business that has been handcrafting chocolate from bean to bar since 1948! The company was started by Michel’s parents, Marc and Marcelle, who originally made pastries in the town of Damville in Normandy.
Eventually they were drawn to work with chocolate and Michel joined the company as an apprentice. The business grew and the family opened up their first shop in Paris on Rue St Honoré. There are now three shops in Paris and a chocolate factory and museum in West Berlin, NJ. Tours are back so pay a visit if you head out that way. Local customers, this is not terribly far!
Chocolat Michel Cluizel is committed to quality. They meticulously source their ingredients and have formed strong partnerships with 7 plantations in the following countries: Guatemala, Brazil, Santo Domingo, São Tomé, Madagascar, and Colombia. Cluizel produces exquisite single origin bars from the plantations’ fine flavor cacao beans that highlight the distinct terroirs from which they hail, just like wine grapes. The Cluizel commitment to high quality also means they never use GMO ingredients in any of their chocolate delicacies. Barometer Chocolate proudly offers you several of the Grand Cru Cluizel Bars.
