Here you are seeing a chunk of 200 kg chocolate blocks with some interesting facts:

  • a cacao tree produces cacao seeds can produce about 3kg of chocolate
  • In Switzerland, on average 12.4 kg of chocolate is consumed per head. 75% of people likes milk chocolate, 20% dark chocolate and 5% white chocolate
  • there is about 500-600 kcal per 100g of chocolate which accounts about one-quarter of the daily calorie requirements which is equivalent to 1.2-1.5 litre of coca-cola or 5-6 bananas or 200-250 white bread

That’s why it’s nicer to share your chocolate with your loved ones.

  1. Thank you so much for letting me know that you’ve posted this! I love your tour through the chocolate exhibition! The body paint chocolate is surely raunch and the cholate salami makes me wonder about how it’d taste. I feel like taking a plane to Switzerland NOW!

  2. Last fall when we were in Geneva there was a Toblerone Exhibition at Le Chateaux des Penthes. This one has a greater variety and very unusual exhibits. I’d like to try everything except those jaws 🙂
