When this Giant was entering the kindergarten he declared that he is going to go by T. He explained the logic that then he then only needs to write one letter on his school papers. That’s how this little Giant thinks.
The short version of this little Goodman’s name that stuck is Taco. With the name Taco you would think he would be the Food expert. You would think this until you watch Taco eat chocolate – seems like he will eat right through the wrapper.
Beautiful presentation, enough that the Giants planned and waited to try these chocolates in Switzerland. The Swiss have some of the world’s best chocolate, right? And a nice box from Switzerland creates a high level of expectation.
The chocolate coating was plane and of no comment or note. The inside “carmel” was of a grainy texture and the only distinctive taste was that of sugar.
Giants rated the unfinished box:
Giants went to bed hungry the night of consuming samples of these chocolates, which is shared to highlight the imagery of the picture below.
Fuchs gives a free Matterhorn chocolate to each person who brings in their pass from Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, a glacier palace built into a location near Zermatt, Switzerland. The chocolates are beautiful, look like they could have been the inspiration for Toblerone, or simply were inspired similarly to the world renown brand of the hidden bear in the logo.
Smooth chocolate, transitioning texture from outside to inside (as if the outside chocolate is a velvet shell to the delicate center), distinct taste, and smiles on the faces all around. Given the mountain setting, the Swiss origin, and the Giant fandom of the T chocolate the debate included comparisons to Toblerone in each comment. The Giants’ world being compared better and worse to a loved Swiss chocolate leads to a rating of:
Does six Goodmans mean the fancy mountains are worth 19 times the price of the chocolate mountain the reader can buy today near their home anywhere in the world? Toblerone cost about $2 for 10 pieces. These mountains in Zermatt cost 3.8 Swiss Francs each and at the time of this post a Swiss Franc is $1.01. Try out the rest of the math at your store as you buy the available chocolate mountains. Good for the Giants they tasted these delights as a promotion to go to a store immediately adjacent to their hotel.
Based on the attempted internet visit to Fuchs these Swiss chocolates may be hard for you to try without travel.
