Just in case you needed another good reason to consider a trip to Switzerland, on October 21st the Camille Bloch chocolate company will open its new chocolate museum and tasting center near the firm’s headquarters in the village of Courtelay.
Devotees of Swiss chocolate—still the world’s best as far as I’m concerned—will be well acquainted with the Camille Bloch line of delectable treats. The family-run company, in business since 1929, produces lots of popular chocolates, including the terrific Ragusa and Torino bars. And don’t get me started on their liqueur-filled chocolates.
So, if you’re on a chocolate-themed trip to Switzerland, it’s worth a detour to Courtelay, in the Bernese Jura near the French border, for a museum visit, chocolate tasting, and factory tour.
