Michel Cluizel Chocolates

Welcome to the refined chocolate world of Michel Cluizel! A world where each single treat is deeply satisfying and where quality matters so much more than quantity. Shall we say a French world?

Our Michel Cluizel selection features classic Orangettes (dark chocolate-coated candied orange slivers) and Mendiants (assorted chocolates with dried fruits and nuts), individual dark chocolate squares for elegant coffee times, and a variety of mini gourmet chocolate bars in colorful pouches bearing suggestive French names (Pause Insolente, Coup de Fouet, et Mon Truc à Moi). We also carry Michel Cluizel's thick and smooth hazelnut and cocoa spread (made with just five natural ingredients, and without palm oil) and irresistible 78% praliné spread.

Normandy-based Michel Cluizel has been handcrafting outstanding chocolates with carefully selected ingredients since 1948. Something you and your loved ones will instantly recognize when you taste your picks.

Enjoy the flavors. Take good care of yourself.
