Le Grand Louis XVI by Debauve and Gallais
Debauve and Gallais have been operating since 1800, so of course their company would know a thing or two about chocolate. In fact, this chocolate company can boast the fact that it supplied French royalty with chocolates prior to the revolution. Its dark chocolate has a 99% cocoa content, making it incredibly rich and chocolatey.
Wispa Gold Chocolate by Cadbury
With all the expensive chocolates, you wouldn’t think that the popular chocolate company that sells $6 chocolate at your local Walmart would rank second on this list, let alone sell a chocolate bar that reaches the thousands in price. But aside from their everyday chocolate, Cadbury produces the Wispa Gold Chocolate, a chocolate bar wrapped in an edible gold leaf.
Chocopologie Chocolate Truffle by Fritz Knipschildt
And the most expensive chocolate on this list is a box of chocolate truffles from the Danish chef Fritz Knipschildt, who opened his own chocolate company Knipschildt Chocolatier in the late ’90s. His popular La Madeline Truffle consists of 70% Valrhona dark chocolate, vanilla, truffle oil, sugar, and heavy cream. These chocolates are made to order, so you can’t just walk into his store to purchase a box. And you can’t store these chocolates for as long as you can to savor every moment – you have to eat them within a week or purchase to ensure you’re eating it at the quality Knipschildt intended.
