Chocolat Foucher, above, have cleverly stayed with their 20's Déco wrapper designs. Jean-Paul Hévin goes for the "naked" tablette with just his brand accross the top like a Louis Vuiton purse.
Look at these crazy-shaped orange chocolate bars from maitre chocolatiere, Arnaud Larher. The flavors too are adventurous - apricot with coconut!? These bars are from La Mère de Famille. Again all is revealed + interesting flavors... These French black wrappers work here, because of the brilliant colors (irradiating color theory - black makes other colors look brighter and lighter). And the colors connote the exotic origins of the cacao bean within.Hershey's jumped into the race at the NY Chocolate show introducing these new bars and blasting the percentages. They're smaller in size... What do you think of them? Guittard is the oldest producer of fine chocolate in the US and of French origin too. They take great care in every step of production to supply the best chocolate to US pastry chefs. But I'd love to see a bit more umph to their new, but rather traditional choco bar wrappers... I think I'll become a chocolate package designer when I grow up :)
