Bernard Callebaut Chocolatier

Hi Kendall


Not sure what makes it different I just found it far supreme than any other chocolate I've had. One christmas my husband came home with a chocolate log full of truffles and i've never had a normal chocolate bar since. He's a world famous chocolatier and his base of operations is in the middle of cattle country Calgary Alberta Canada. If you ever get the chance to try some be careful it could ruin your taste buds for the ordinary. You can only get the chocolate from one of the outlets I've never seen it anywhere else. Oh yeah i ate all the truffles and the Chocolate log in about a week yumyum:o

Bernard Callebaut

I came across your discussion while trying to find a website for Bernard Callebaut. I'd originally spelled it as Barb did and the only link was to your conversation. If you'd like any more information his website is:
