Anyone who has heard of French luxury food Hediard? They had a department in a store in Copenhagen, and I bought a 71% bar from them. I am generally very suspicious about luxury brand chocs, which are probably made by some industrial maker and then labelled the brand name at twice the price. But thought I should give them the benefit of trying one, and it turned out very good: A dark brown-red bar whose aroma and wrapping suggests is made by the well known V-.company, although not so spicy as e.g. Manjari.

I have tried http://www.hediard.fr, but the site didn’t work, so do anyone of you know about it?

I’ve not tried it and they seems to have a few problems with their website. Here is a link to the English version:
