Michel Cluizel Chocolate Squares
Premium Snacking Chocolate & Bulk Offerings
Not only do we offer Michel Cluizel’s premium chocolate bars, but also their chocolate squares in both tasting boxes and bulk quantities. Arguably the best snacking chocolate, the single-estate tasting boxes take you on a journey through chocolate tasting, while their bulk square offerings are a great way to indulge in greatness and save! Just as single malt Scotch is renowned for having been produced at a single distillery, thereby preserving the uniqueness of that particular estate, so too does chocolate have a similar standard. This style of chocolate is produced by Michel Cluizel chocolatiers under the title of “les Crus de Plantation®”, or Single Plantation bars and squares, meaning all of the cocoa beans originated at the same farm. This is a complex and detailed process that involves an immense amount of work, but for those who care about their craft like the people at Michel Cluizel do, it’s worth it.
