The Chocolateries of India: Indulge in Some Sin!
The mere thought of chocolate can transport most folks into a dreamy, utopian world where the dark, creamy, silky nectar flashes itself and woos one with pure sinful temptation. It is for a reason that chocolate reigns supreme over the culinary fantasies of gourmets – chocolate is heaven. On account of its unparalleled glory and incredible taste, cocoa beans were used as currency in ancient Egypt. Tough to imagine how the currency managed to survive without being gobbled up!
But enough said about the hegemony of chocolate over all else. For a chocolate aficionado, what matters is where to head when the cruel craving for cocoa rages a storm within. And then starts the hunt for the best chocolateries around. To help all those helpless chocophiles, here’s a list of the top chocolateries in India - the ones that have carved a glamorous and enviable niche for themselves in the beautiful craft of chocolate making.
