MUCHOMAS, the Other European Tour

Last spring, we toured Europe's great chocolate houses to taste Europe's best truffles, bon bons, and craft chocolates. For education and inspiration of course! 

This year, we returned to Europe with MUCHOMAS Chocolate for some amazing Weddings! That's right. Our MUCHOMAS bars were featured in a beautiful Mediterranean wedding on the Greek Island of Santorini. In Vienna, our couverture was paired with Bristol Coffee for wedding favors. And more deliciously, it was the main ingredient in several cakes made for a Viennese Palace Wedding. 

Check it out!
