Salon Du Chocolat Design

 The Salon du Chocolat always offers up much eye candy in the way of innovative packaging. Francois Pralus got the ball rolling years ago using a rainbow of bright colors to package his bars (instead of the tres boring chocolate brown still used by some chocolatiers).

 A multi-vert/green stack from Pralus.

 A pretty copycat from Darcis.

 Happy colors for Arnaud Larher's macaron boxes.

 I love seeing the product through the box - these macaron coques/shells from Sadaharu Aoki.
 

 Beautiful shades of honey/miel at the Salon. It's not just chocolate!

 Golden wrapped maron glacee sitting in copper pot - simply lush from Frederic Cassel of Fontainebleau.

 More delights from Frederic Cassel...

 Chocolat Chapon never disappoints with a combination of contempory and old-fashioned design.

 Nothing wrong with an old-fashioned pink box of Beschle Swiss chocolates tied with a green bow ever.

Can you imagine a better way to package your Smart Car then enrobed in Pierre Herme macarons? Miam
 
Here's a look inside the golden wrapped chocolate packaging of Ferrero Rocher step-by-delicious step

Do go to the Salon du Chocolat and try one!

  2. I agree with Lucinda! I'll just hop on the TGV & go just to see the handsome young man in his very smart suit. Have fun & enjoy your weekend in Paris or where ever you are now.

    Not a Smart car. It's the amazing new Renault tandem seat Twizzy electric. Take a moment to enjoy Renault's video of the Twizzy:

    A Twizzy would be wonderful, but must be satisfied with macarons and chocolates.

  7. All hail Francois Pralus!!! I want a wall of his candy bars! Strictly to look at of course....just look, maybe sniff. I bet I could stack the re-folded empty wrappers and no one would be the wiser.

  8. Sorry, Twizy! That is a mad car! Have seen a few running around London. It is a lot better than our offering, the Gwiz.
