The idea behind this chain of stores present in Madrid came from a Belgian architect who grew up surrounded by cocoa beans and who has brought imagination and creativity to the world of chocolate so as to make it not only desirable for the palate but also eye-candy.
By combining different ingredients, textures and flavours, Chocolat Factory has created 56 different varieties of chocolates. In order to do so, they use cocoa from Java, Venezuela or Sao Tomé, which can be made into such diverse shapes as that of a wedding invitation, a head, an animal, or it can be drunk or transformed into a delicious microwaveable mousse, amongst other options.
Some of their products’ designs, like The Tubes, have been awarded prizes at several competitions and are presented as the perfect gift for every occasion. Furthermore, they offer such daring proposals as thin chocolate sheets with a touch of salt and accompanied by wine, or the combination of cocoa with orange marmalade, pear jam or chestnut cream.
