Whether for a gift that will win you major brownie points or a special treat for yourself, this chocolate emporium will astonish you.
A shop with more than 300 exquisite kinds of chocolate.
All you need to do is follow your nose to the Chocolatière du Panier, which has been a Marseille institution since the 1980s, with now three generations of women - Rosette, Michelle, and Marine - creating nearly 300 dazzling varieties of artisanal chocolate. Just to name a few: blueberries, lemon, rum-raisin, ginger... filling prettily adorned baskets, little boxes of bonbons, bars of fine dark chocolate with fruit, cakes, cookies. Whether you buy as a special treat for yourself or as a gift (in which case you simply must sample the merchandise, mustn't you?), the flavours imparted by these ladies' secret recipes is absolutely addictive. And if for whatever reason you can't take it with you, they'll ship. Sweet.
