I got my hands on these two bars of chocolate when I was in Bucharest during Christmas last year and I wanted to find out more about romanian chcolate. here is what I found out:
“the first romanian chocolate products with royal name were launched at Elisabeta Palace on April, 6, 2015. “Kandia Regal” is the name, including three sorts: milk chocolate named after Princess Margareta, dark chocolate with 55 pc cocoa named after Prince Radu and dark chocolate with 75 pc cocoa Peles Castle.”
“in Romania, for more than 120 years, the Royal House has encouraged the national chocolate production, each generation, starting with King Carol I and Queen Elisabeth attached their names to the Romanian chocolate. there was even a chocolate factory ‘Queen Mary’, set up in 1919.”
I only tried the 55pc and 75pc cocoa chocolate and they were super delicious, not too sweet and not too bitter. I personally liked the 55pc a bit better than the 75pc. not sure if I could tell the difference between this dark chocolate and the LINDT dark chocolate that I usually eat. so it def has some chance to be compared to swiss chocolate!
