zotter has started quite a tradition in austria - now every patisserie seems to be producing their own chocolate, and most of them are simply terrible - rose petals and pinenuts still producing a bad aftertaste of soap in my mouth! I went through a zotter phase about a year and a half ago, the combinations where different back then, so i cannot comment on the ones you tried, but i simply LOVE one in particular, the "Grammelnussn" - nuts paired with pork scratchings... sounds awful, but its combination of the sweet and salty is truely delicious!
Other than that I have to agree, bit of a purist myself. Attended a "slow food" event in London last friday - "from bean to cup", on the production of chocolate, obviously incl. tasting. VERY interesting. Might do a post on it some time soon.


They don't have the grammelnussen here and no Slow Food either :-(: pherhaps it's time I move back to a biggger city. Please post about the Slow Food thing: I'd love to know more about it!


where in new york can I find Zotter chocolate?
