Soft, creamy candies (more hazelnut than chocolate) individually wrapped in silver foil.  Cost: 24.95 Swiss francs for a 500g box.

Gianduja was my least favorite in this box.  The hazelnut flavor was weak and the chocolate was just OK – nothing special.

Piemontais was just slightly better.  The cocoa was not overly sweet, and it had small pieces of actual hazelnuts, which were not all that tasty.

Marquise was good.  Creamy hazelnut with small sweet crunchy bits, which seem to be… almonds?

Malakoff was good too.  I am liking these small, sweet crunchy bits!

Avelotte was even better!  Smooth, soft hazelnut cream.  Much more hazelnutty than Marquise, in a good way.

Buchette was great too!  I am really liking these sweet crunchy bits.  Great combination of flavors!

Mocca was my favorite.  Wow, can I get a box of just this?  The combination of flavors was perfectly balanced.   Tasting this took me right back to Switzerland.  Ahhh, such quality…

The crunchy, bitter cacao bits pack a punch! Prepare to get buzzed.  For hardcore chocoholics only. Not suitable for those who like the sweet gentleness of milk chocolate.  Cost: 2.90 Swiss francs for a 100g bar at the ubiquitous Swiss Coop.
