Elegance, Intelligence & Excellence: zChocolat

Zchocolates are handmade in the city of Troyes, France; the mahogany and basswood boxes are painstakingly constructed in the Jura region of France, all zBoxes in the Sarthe region in France – and the customer service, order fulfillment and operations are performed in the South of France. Each box of chocolates is proudly stamped with a ‘Product of France‘ label –bestowing each gift with an aura of distinction.


zChocolat is committed to elevating the art of gift giving to a new level of personal expression – one of imagination, intelligence, and elegance – and one that assures the sender will make a grand and lasting impression.”


zChocolat has formed a strategic and exclusive partnership with Pascal Caffet, World Champion Chocolatier & Pastry Chef. All chocolates are handmade with zealous adherence to French tradition: no alcohol, no preservatives, no coloring, high cocoa content, low sugar and 100% pure cocoa butter. All signature dark, milk and white chocolates include rich ganaches prepared with the highest quality French butter and cream from Normandy; and finely textured pralinés honed from a perfected mixture of Valencia almonds from Spain and Piedmont hazelnuts from Italy.


Extending a present is bestowing a portion of thyself. zChocolat allows customers to add a personal touch to all gifts with ease and distinction, transforming a simple act of giving into an unforgettable experience. No initial setup fees, no minimum volumes, no delays.Each gift is accompanied by a natural-fiber greeting card, entirely customizable with a personal message, a personal photo, a company logo or any other JPEG format image uploaded on our website.


Customers can create their own assortment by individually picking their favorite chocolates. When ordering for themselves, they select the recipes they like best; when ordering a gift, they can also take advantage of our numbered chocolates by “writing-out” a year, a birth-date, a phone number or even a cryptic, numeric code.
