The best part of these shops is the section full of “defekts”. These are bars with crooked labeling, improper molds, wrong packaging, etc. I know you were worried – but we’re bringing you all authentically Swiss defective chocolate.

Oh wait, the other best part was free samples. We (by “we”, I mean Shane) had our fair share.

PS. Did you know that Swiss people ingest one chocolate bar per capita per day?!
