Michel Cluizel - une vitrine pleine de chocolat



Of all the delicious offerings in this Rue Saint-Honoré window the bucket of eggs, the large one on the right, would suit me just fine.  I'll share, of course!

Michel Cluizel has an interesting history, traced back to a family pastry business in Normandy.  In 1948 Michel Cluizel followed his parents as they transitioned into the chocolate business.  Today, Michel, a true cacaofevier and his four children are leaders in this family business which employs over 200 people.  One could compare the varieties of chocolate to those of fine wine with more descriptive adjectives than I can summon in my French vocabulary.  One of his daughters runs the boutique here on Rue Saint-Honoré.

I first posted about Michel Cluizel here for the chocolate purses in the window.

The bunnies with the protruding front teeth need my assistance!

France is becoming so commercial.

I'm with Vreni and Harriet -- those cute buck-toothed egg/bunnies are calling to me. It's an amazing display, Genie. Hope you're enjoying this holiday weekend.

Kris said...

Yummy! There is something to be said about the way Paris shops always display their wares. For me, its all about the packaging!

You would not have to twist my arm to get me to try one of these!

Genie, Have a Happy and Blessed Easter!

Mary said...

I am in love with the bunnies with big teeth and bows. But, truly, it all looks quite yummy indeed! :)

Randy said...

Looks yummy.

Virginia, you really made me laugh and if I didn't know better I would think you were a regular patron at CB!

This window is quite different from the usual elegant styles, but there is something endearing and comical about the rabbits.

Bises,
Genie
