5 Best Chocolate Brands in the World

By Marina Krivonossova on May 24, 2021

We all get cravings for sweets — there’s nothing wrong with that. But when you’re not in the mood to be a health icon who reaches for a piece of fruit, the second best thing you can go for is chocolate (or at least that’s how I see it)! And, if you’re an avid chocolate enthusiast like me, you won’t settle for just any old chocolate. You need the perfect chocolate — the one that’s balanced, rich, and delicious. That’s why I took the liberty of compiling this list of the five best chocolate brands in the world for you. I didn’t find most of them until I left the US, but I sure wish I did! Keep reading to see if your favorite chocolate made the list.

1. Leonidas. You know what they say — Belgian chocolate is some of the best in the world! And whoever they are that says this is entirely right. Almost no chocolate in the world compares to that produced in Belgium, so it’s no surprise that the Belgian brand Leonidas is the first one I have to talk about. As someone currently based in the Netherlands, I’m fortunate to have access to a lot of Belgian chocolate brands nearby. I particularly love that Leonidas has numerous conveniently located stores where I can pick out my favorite pralines and bars. I love trying out new brands of chocolate and supporting small businesses, but what I appreciate about Leonidas is that I can always count on them to deliver delicious, high-quality, and reasonably priced chocolate.

2. Verkade. I’m usually not too keen on typical store brand chocolate, as it tends to be far from good. But I was desperately craving chocolate one day, and I decided to give a Verkade dark chocolate bar a shot. Now, every time I find myself in the grocery store, I have to resist the urge to grab one, because I know I’ll finish eating it in under 10 minutes the moment I get home. Verkade is an affordable and delicious chocolate manufactured in the Netherlands, and if you ever find yourself in this lovely country, you need to get yourself a bar of Verkade the second you step off the plane.

3. The Chocolate Line. This Belgian brand is my favorite in the world by far. I discovered them on a trip to Antwerp, and I swear they changed the way I experience chocolate. Not only do they have amazing chocolate bars, but also really delicious and unique chocolate pralines. The Chocolate Line offers flavor combinations that I’ve never seen anywhere else! Plus, if you visit one of their stores in Belgium, you’ll get to see the process of how their chocolate is made. Super neat thing to add to your travel bucket list.

4. Reber. If it weren’t for my marzipan-loving dad, I probably would never have known about Reber. This German chocolate brand makes all sorts of delicious treats, but my personal family favorite of theirs is the Reber Mozart Kugeln. It’s a ball of marzipan that is filled with a unique ganache and enrobed in a fine layer of bittersweet, dark chocolate. If you’re looking to switch up your chocolate routine and try something new, order yourself some Reber Mozart Kugeln today. And keep your eyes out on the Reber holiday advent calendars, which are a fun and delicious gift for yourself or a loved one!

5. Lindt. Last but not least, I want to talk about Lindt. You’ve probably seen Lindt chocolate in the aisles of your local grocery store, and you’ve probably noticed that their chocolate isn’t difficult to find. But, just as with Verkade, ease of accessibility doesn’t mean lack of quality. Lindt chocolate is one of my favorites not simply due to the perfect flavor balance in every chocolate bar and candy, but also because of the new and exciting flavors that they’re regularly coming up with. And, it’s important to mention that even if you’ve seen Lindt in stores, you’ve certainly not seen every kind of chocolate they offer! Get the full Lindt experience by visiting their US website today.

And, there you have it: the five best chocolate brands in the world, as shared by an avid chocolate enthusiast. Did you learn of a new chocolate brand you’re psyched to try? Or do you think I missed your favorite? Leave your thoughts and comments down below!
