Bonneval abbey and the nuns' chocolate

Bonneval chocolate | / CC-BY-NC-SA

What’s this?

Nuns made chocolate in Bonneval abbey (Aveyron), since 1875! Only cocoa butter, no preservative, no colouring...

We have liqueur chocolate (vodka, raspberry, gentian or Puy vervein liqueur), chocolate with sugared almonds, with nougat from Montélimar, with nuts, with rice...

We also have bars of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, milk with nuts, but also delicately flavoured dark chocolate: tea, ginger, spices, bergamot...

The little history

They had their own factories and started to make chocolate bars and candies...
