Everyone loves chocolate

Happiness that you can eat.

Switzerland is chocolate heaven. Swiss chocolatiers invented milk chocolate – and made it into the most popular sweet treat in the world. It’s no surprise that Switzerland tops the world in chocolate consumption.

Sweet dreams.

“Nine out of ten people like chocolate. The tenth is lying.” (Graffiti scrawled on a wall ). Every Swiss child would agree: their favourite afternoon snack has always been bread and chocolate. During the more than 400 years since Columbus became the first European to see cocoa beans, Switzerland has come to the forefront of chocolate manufacturing worldwide.
