About Us

teuscher chocolates - founded 80 years ago in Switzerland, 45 years presence in the USA!

Teuscher Chocolates was founded in the Swiss mountainside in 1932 - our signature creation, the Champagne Truffle, has been appreciated around the world for over 70 years!

Despite the technology involved in today`s food manufacturing processes, our Champagne Truffle is still being crafted just as it always has been, using only the purest and highest quality ingredients such as Dom Perignon champagne.

The Champagne Truffle has a dark chocolate ganache center that is enriched by a creamy infusion containing finest Dom Perignon Champagne. Its enrobing consists of milk chocolate and it is finally sprinkled with confectioner`s sugar to produce the Champagne Truffle`s distinctive look.

We never use preservatives, hydrogenated oils, gums or waxes in our products, but rather ship the chocolates every week from Zurich in order for them to be available freshly in our stores in Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East. In this way, we continue to bring you these marvelous chocolates, acclaimed as the world`s finest by gourmets and critics alike.
Teuscher Truffles should be kept at low room temperature (68 degrees) and they are best if consumed within 10 days.

Fans of Teuscher appreciate that it is less sweet than most American chocolates. Truffles are Teuscher`s masterpieces, especially the champagne. With a bite, the zing of Dom Perignon in the creamy center hits the tongue, then invigorates the surrounding velvety ganache. A spill-proof, divine way to make a champagne toast.
