Zurich has a number of great chocolate shops. One of our favourites is Confiserie Honold.
They have an extensive selection of truffles which are a delight to taste. As well as the classic dark, milk and while chocolate truffles they also have quite a few nut based ones (the Marzipan one is delicious) and quite a lot of alcoholic truffle. “Honold Traube” is a whole Regina grape (not raisin) which has been mascerated in cognac for a full 12 months before being ready for your delectation.
However, the best selling Truffle of all is “Lottis Best” which is layers of nougat, combined with tonka bean and a touch of fleur du sel, all covered with dark Venezuelan chocolate with a final flourish of edible gold dust. Don’t forget to try it when you next pass by!
