Breuninger Confiserie Cassis

Breuningerland is the only mall of any size around these parts. A department store chain as well as a mall company, they control tightly what gets sold in their mall. You can buy a Bree handbag at several different stores in the mall, for example, but at each store they are exactly the same price. Every store accepts the Breuninger credit card as well. And no other credit card - it's Breuninger, cash card, or cash.

The restaurants at the mall are also controlled by Breuninger, and my favorite place to have a cappucino and a piece of cake is the Breuninger Confiserie. My favorite piece is the chocolate truffle mousse cake. I bought one of those for my daughter's birthday cake this year.

Breuninger also sells teas, and at my last visit, I bought a lovely pekoe tea with bits of orange. With that, I bought a bar of hand-crafted chocolate, decorated wtih a layer of cassis-flavored chocolate.

This is one fine bar. The chocolate is not too sweet, which is good, because the cassis sugar is very sweet. But the cassis flavor is strong, which balances everything out. The chocolate afternote is strong and pleasant, and very smooth.
