Know about THESE 5 insanely expensive chocolates that fit the definition of Midas touch!

Doesn't hearing that it's World Chocolate Day instantly play 'Kiss Me, Close Your Eyes' in the background?

It is believed that ancient Mayans used cacao leaves as currency and this makes them way ahead of time in realising that chocolates are as important as money!

While the word 'artisanal' gets thrown out a lot, we believe that it goes best with the word 'chocolate'! Rich in taste, bejewelled in appearance and exclusive in their availability, these 5 insanely expensive chocolates from around the world will help you understand why this conclusion makes sense.


Trinity - Truffles Extraordinaire

Priced at ₹4.3 lakh per kilogram, is the limited edition chocolate revealed by Fabelle Exquisite Chocolates, a homegrown chocolate luxury brand by ITC.

This delicious and eco-friendly chocolate is regarded as one of the most expensive chocolates in the world and is used widely by the best pastry chefs to create the choicest of desserts.

Le Chocolat Box

Designed by Simon Jewellers as a marketing stunt, Le Chocolat Box is considered among the world's most expensive chocolates. Apart from the wealth of chocolates that this box contains, the high price tag originated primarily due to the included necklaces, bracelets, rings, and other expensive jewellery items.

Wispa Gold

Almost everyone's favourite, Cadbury relaunched their Wispa Gold Bar in 1995 and to publicize the event, they created a special Wispa Gold Bar worth $1,600 (approx. ₹1,19,495). Made with premium Madagascan cocoa beans and wrapped in edible gold leaf, this unique treat is now put on display at Cadbury World, which is a chocolate-themed museum.

Swarovski Studded Chocolates

Lebanese chocolatier, Patchi, and London's famous store, Harrods, together produced Swarovski-studded Chocolates. Dressed in gold and silk rose, each of the dark chocolate pieces is studded with Swarovski crystals, before being packed in a genuine leather box. Further, this box comes with the option of customization as per your needs.

Knock Knock

Used since time immemorial to treat heartaches and mark happy beginnings, chocolates are versatile and comforting. While the 'rich' chocolates mentioned in this listicle may seem a little out of reach, we hope that you don't forget to celebrate today by indulging in your favourite confectionary made of chocolate.
