Few are these blessed choco maker who have crept into the list of best chocolate makers on the globe.
On the beautiful lands of Switzerland high on the Alps some 70 years ago Dolf Teuscher went ransacking the globe to find exotic fruits, beans, cocoa, marzipan to make his own signature sweet confectionaries.

The makers kitchen is seen in Zurich where they continue t blend in the best of ingredients to form the best chocolates. They presently prepare around more than 100 varieties of chocolates out of the best nuts and fruits. The best part being there is no added preservative or chemical.
