Délicia 72%350g box
Registered Trademark ® 1923
Round on the palate, this dark chocolate excels through the intensity of its woody notes and its head notes of cacao. Its length in the mouth is generous and creamy. A classic and universal chocolate that will please a great number. This is the original Délicia recipe and it hasn't changed in many decades.
A company icon and a speciality trademarked by Mr Palomas in 1923, the Délicia is an extremely thin palet of dark chocolate containing 72% cacao. The chocolate used to make Délicias contains no soya lecithin. Délicias are made purely from cacao beans, cane sugar and vanilla pods. Délicias are chocolates that are noted for their delicacy and for the sensation of strength and fleetingness.
More than a speciality, this is a delicacy for connoisseurs. Generations of Lyon residents have grown up enjoying Délicias from childhood and have made this product their own, finding ever more imaginative ways of savouring it. Our clients have even gone so far as to rename it "the devil's wafer" as, in this very religious Lyon neighbourhood, they simply cannot resist temptation.View all Délicia

The extreme thinness of Délicia chocolate palets makes perfect sense as soon as you taste them. The first sensation is the cracking of the chocolate and then, instantly, the melting palet coats the palate and the tongue. This order of sensations really brings out the perception of the aromas and flavours. Délicias can be enjoyed at any time of day, at a temperature not exceeding 20°C, accompanied by a coffee, a tea or a glass of Madeira or Port.
A Word from our Chocolate Master
Délicias are wonderful chocolates of surprising simplicity and yet the ultimate in sophistication. We know of no match for the Délicia. Because Délicias are so thin, we have to take extra care with their production from start to finish. Like many of our chocolates and confectioneries, they are made by hand; no machine would give us the thinness we are looking for.
