In our selection today, we will guide you into the exciting world of chocolates. All five brands are characterized by a craftsmanship process and an eternal spirit of experimentation to create the most perfect sweets possible.

Harrer Chocolate | Hungary

The Harrer manufactory is located in Sopron, where traditional chocolate making is combined with modern techniques and innovative flavor combinations. For example, who would have thought that beetroot or paprika chocolate could be made in such a delicious way? Harrer’s team is constantly researching specialties like these, and then making masterful desserts out of them.

Today, they are one of the most popular handcrafted chocolate factories in Romania, where delicious desserts have been made with unbroken momentum ever since.
