We have all heard about chocolates made in France, Belgium, Switzerland, or in the good old USA. Things have not really changed much in the past decades and yet a country in Eastern Europe still does not get the credit it describes for its flavored chocolates; we're talking about Poland.
What makes the Polish variety so special? How about sweets with shells of dark chocolate and pieces of Coconuts as a filling? Flavored Polish sweets have always had a high concentration of natural ingredients, sweets from sweet maker Solidarnosc, have at least 8% of whole pieces of Coconut, Pistachio or even 38% of whole plums or Hazelnuts. All these flavors are surrounded by a shell of dark chocolate with a high concentration of cocoa, at least 45%.
Polish companies like E.Wedel have been selling chocolates for over 155 years. Few people know that the idea of selling chocolate bars with a fruity flavored filling actually originated with Wedel! In the 70s the company was looking at reinvigorating its line of chocolates and an employee, Franciszek Piekarek, had the idea of combining chocolates bars with fruity flavored fillings, the idea was so well received that the company still sells the same flavored chocolate bars it did 30 years ago. Flavors range from Coconut, Raspberry, Black Current, Orange, Cappuccino and many more …
The best in all this? The price! Polish sweets have long been known only to poles, and with the low cost of life in Poland these sweets can be grabbed at a bargain. There is no brand name to pay for like Ferrero Rocher or Lindt, prices really do reflect the cost of manufacturing. You can purchase 12 flavored chocolates from Solidarnosc with whole pieces of Plums at only 2.39 $.
