Eurodream Chocolates

eurodream

Ever wondered what Sweden would taste like if it was a piece of chocolate? Or Germany? France? How about Greece?

John Messinger, chocolatier, knows. Or at least, he has an opinion. He's the producer of Eurodream, a special chocolate box with 25 different flavors - each one inspired by a European country.

So, about the flavors - according to Messinger, Sweden tastes like cloudberry, Germany like hazelnut, France is all about champagne and Greece about anise. Interesting! I especially like the choice for Poland - vodka! In fact, I'd love to try a box of this - but it's pretty pricey, 249 SEK for a box with 25 chocolates. I wonder if they're any good - let me know if you've tried them!

An intriguing idea. Any idea what England tasted of? I'm going with bacon...!

Jeanne, as fun as that would have been, no: England was tea-flavored :)

Neat idea! I just tried cloudberry preserves for the first time about a month ago...cloudberry is not exactly easy to find in the US, but it was very tasty!

Lovely idea, but very expensive. I'm not surprised about Poland, an alternative would have been beets (which are quite good in a chocolate cake at least) :-)

Tycker det här är ganska coolt, men jag köpte en enligt mig niceare grej i London det är en spansk konditor som heter Enric Rosich han gör planter tror det var stycken och en stor som var solen. Alla hade ha gjort så dom skulle se ut som respektive planet också helt sjukt snyggt. Sen såg jag en Svensk konditor av mycket hög klass kopierar det i stort sätt rakt av då blir man lite sne. Må så gott Anne mvh Daniel Roos The Pastry Designer

Läste en recension om den där boxen för några veckor sedan och den fick inte speciellt bra betyg. Sveriges chokladbit ska visst vara rätt smaklös (tillsammans med många andra länders bitar). Många smaker var alldeles för krystade och man rekomenderades att istället köpa sina praliner hos sin lokala favorithandlare.

Jag köpte en kartong till min pappa och den var mycket uppskattad!
