Top 7 Countries That Make The Best Chocolate in the World

Top 7 Countries That Make The Best Chocolate in the World

There is no doubt that the best chocolate in the world must be eaten and brought. Here are the Top 7 Countries That Make The Best Chocolate in the World.

1. Belgium

You can’t go to Belgium and not go to a chocolate shop! They are everywhere! There are more than 2,000 throughout the country! What makes Belgian chocolate unique is that it is only cooled at the end of the production process, which allows it to hold onto more of its aroma. Did you know, Belgium chocolate is also almost entirely handcrafted.

2. Switzerland

Even if you haven’t been to Switzerland, you’ve probably had Swiss chocolate. Lindt is the most popular Swiss chocolate brand and can be purchased around the world. The interesting thing about the production of Swiss chocolate is the climate is not conducive to growing cacao plants as they found a way to produce chocolate all the same. The average Swiss eats more than 10 kilos of chocolate per year!

3. Ecuador

Ecuador is home to some of the best cacao beans in the world. Only approximately 5% of cacao in the world is labelled as “Fine Aroma,” and Ecuador produces nearly 63% of it. Until recently, Ecuador focused its efforts on exporting their cacao, but in the last few years, they have turned to make their own chocolate. One brand, Paraci, has won dozens of international awards in recent years, beating out traditional European chocolate makers.

4.United Kingdom

Cadbury originated in the United Kingdom and originally sold tea, coffee, and drinking chocolate in the 1820s. The Cadbury brothers supplied Queen Victoria with chocolate in the 1850s and developed the popular Dairy Milk chocolate, famous for having a higher milk content, in 1905.

5. Ivory Coast

Africans consume less than 4% of chocolate sold globally, but Ivory Coast is looking to change that with their handmade, artisanal chocolates. Known as the leader in the production and exporting of cocoa beans, the country has begun producing its own chocolate as the region continues to stabilize and experience economic growth. One company, Instant Chocolat, was launched in 2015 and has experienced tremendous growth in its first few years. Their chocolate, ranging from pralines to bars, is popular both locally and internationally, particularly with corporate clients like Air France and Citibank.

6. Italy

The most popular chocolate producer in Italy is Amadei. They buy their cocoa directly from growers, which means they know exactly where the beans came from, and how they were grown. They use that knowledge to produce some of the best chocolates in the world. The Italians also enjoy using chocolate in their pastries.

7. United States

American uses lots of peanuts and almonds. There are a number of artisan chocolate shops across the country, but Hershey’s in the country’s largest producer of the candy.
