Hi!
Has anyone tried the French chocolate from Chocolats Olivier? Is it good?

Too me it looks like they are using single origin couverture from Barry Callebaut. I'm sure you're familiar with their chocolate.
A quote from Chocolats Olivier website:

quote:


Chocolats Olivier was purchased in April of 2005 by Franco-American brothers Alain and Alexander Beret and American business partner James Fairbanks. Since its purchase in 2005, Olivier has reached beyond its regional borders of Toulouse to expand its sales into the United States, Russia, United Arab Emirates and Europe.


Regrettably their price is too high in Sweden. 7.5 Euro for a bar is far too much I think. I'm sure the American business partner is in it for the money. [url]http://www.chocolatsolivier.com/[/url]
