‘Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get next’ – Forrest Gump. This famous line from the movie is the perfect way to sum up an experience at the Fantasie chocolate store!
|A glimpse at all the chocolate on display|
Fantasie Fine Chocolates has been making original handcraft artisanal chocolates since 1946. Zeba Kohli who has taken over the company reins and spun this into a full fledge chocolate empire is on a mission to make the world fall in love with chocolate. She is, in my opinion, our very own Willy Wonka because her chocolate factory seems to be making everyone’s fantasie come true! With a range of 33 different types of soft centred chocolates, edible chocolate boxes ( the box holding all the chocolate is made out of chocolate its self) chocolate bars, magical chocolate fountains, miraculous concoctions of sugar free chocolates there isn’t anything this company doesn’t create with chocolate. If launching a new range of chocolate for the festive season isn’t enough, Zeba has taken spreading the joy of chocolate a step further and launched her very own Fantasie Chocolate Dictionary.

The dictionary is a fun witty little book with adorable terms that Zeba has coined herself to describe chocolate. This quirky humorous little ‘brown’ book is a memento for all chocoholics. The Fantasie Chocolate Dictionary was unveiled at the swanky Vinoteca by Sula with some of Zeba’s friends and chocolate lovers. Many familiar faces and some extremely ‘ drool-tastic’ ones like Milind Soman. (I took one look at him up close and had my own lil Hubba Hubba moment). There was a small but hilarious reading with some of her friends, Butlers marching in making a grand entrance to present the dictionary to the readers, followed by a sexy sangria brunch. Though the dictionary is the show stopper for this event it would be grossly unfair not to mention the trays (and I do mean plural) of chocolates kept on display for guests to try and go gaga over.

This is exactly why I think Zeba Kohli is like the Chocolate Santa Claus. You are constantly urged and encouraged to not just sample the chocolate but go nuts and stuff your face with them! Hazel nut and praline, orange crème, mint, strawberry, raspberry, dates, nut crunch, mango, a range of coffee flavours, lemonchello and about a dozen more flavours I can’t seem to remember were all on display at the chocolate bar. In fact it’s not just Zeba but even when you step into any of the Fantasie chocolate outlets to buy a box, her staff eagerly insists you try more chocolates and you can’t help but feel you’re in sweet heaven. What is even more interesting is that someone like myself who isn’t a chocolate lover and on most occasions turns down chocolate found something to enjoy in this vast land of cocoa. I guess there really is something for everyone!
