After enjoying the scenic ride from Lausanne to Broc, it’s now time to fulfill our sweet tooth’s craving and taste sensation for Nestle Cailler chocolates.
We purchased our tickets at the factory itself which costs CHF10 per adult and chose the interactive guided tours in English. It’s very informative as it narrates the story of chocolates – from the Mayas who considered it as food for the gods to Aztecs considered it as aphrodisiac, and how it arrived in Europe in the 16th century to which only the rich people can afford chocolates down to the 19th century where it was introduced lower classes. It also shares the history of Cailler factory and the process of manufacturing the chocolates.
Of course the best part of the tour was the tastings of Cailler’s chocolate products, where we were also given a chance to take away a few chocolates for free. They also have a chocolate store to shop for those who wanted more.
Cailler Factory address is as follows:
