Zuri Girl was drooling at the opportunity to experience Max Chocolatier Boutique the day before it’s Grand Opening.
Hosted by Ursina, one of the lovely Max Chocolatiers, , we engaged on a decadent journey and oh my ladies, the newest chocolate shop on the block is also officially our favorite!
A MUST for Zurich gifts, dinner party hostess delights and well…simply your daily dose of deliciousness!
Enjoy our Top 5 Reasons we Love Max Chocolatier Boutique
The Taste. Melt in your mouth, savor every bite…ladies, these chocolates bring your taste buds a place they’ve never been before!
Think dark chocolate Ganache, truffles, chocolate covered coffee beans, almonds, hazelnut & passionfruit; Fleur de Sel Caramel Plättli; 38-74% chocolate bars from chocolate heavens like Bolivia & Madagascar; seasonal flavors like Raspberry, Pumpkin and Cranberry & Chili; hot coccoa & brownie bar recipe ingredients and not to be forgotten a giant cocoa fruit replica molded into chocolate ideal for a dinner party hostess gift.
Zuri Girl Tip: Because the chocolate is made fresh with only core ingredients (cocoa, cocoa butter & sugar), they also have a fast expiration date…the chocolate bars last the longest at 4 months.
Handcrafted in Switzerland. Literally…not handcrafted halfway in Switzerland or handcrafted in a far away land, we’re talking a handful of talented chefs in Lucern literally preparing every bite starting from milking the cow not too far from the shop’s entrance down to the last detail of hand wrapped packaging.
Zuri Girl Tip: The truffles themselves take 3 whole days requiring 10 individual steps to create!
The Experience. You wouldn’t be human if you didn’t notice right away the samples in front every display using all your will power not to dig right in. But, that’s ok, ladies…sampling is welcomed and the boutique staff are more than happy to help you. Don’t be shy – have a try and chat it up with the friendly staff.
Zuri Girl Tip: The flavors & packaging change with the season. Think elderflower infusions in July and pistachio flavors in December. On 28 November, the boutique will turn into a winter wonderland.
The Philosophy. Max Chocolatier value Family, Craftsmanship and Exquisite Quality. After all, their initial opening day was 27 September, the birthdate of the man who inspired it all and the brand itself is named after the man’s Grandson, Max, whose letter X may be seen discreetly and indiscreetly in all the chocolates and packaging.
Zuri Girl Tip: Select your own packaging…there’s seasonal ribbon colors, Zurich themed wrap by Swiss artist Esther Gerber and 1 of 40 adorable note cards like “With Love from Zurich”.
