LUXURY CHOCOLATES SINCE 210 YEARS
Take a bite out of one of our Pistoles de Marie-Antoinette, close your eyes: here you are with Marie-Antoinette in 1779. The queen, overwhelmed by painful headaches, is reluctant to take her medications whose taste repels her. Sulpice Debauve therefore decided to innovate: the pharmacist mixed the remedy with cocoa butter. This tasty invention fulfills Marie-Antoinette who baptizes these chocolate medallions “Pistoles de Marie-Antoinette”. The first chewable chocolate was born!
THE BENEFITS OF CHOCOLATE
THE INTUITION OF SULPICE
Sulpice Debauve understood, as early as the 18th century, that chocolate could do us good. He used his expertise as a pharmacist to create “Health Chocolates”, with a high cocoa content, such as the Pistoles de Marie-Antoinette, so dear to the queen. The intuition of the founder of Debauve et Gallais is now scientifically confirmed: chocolate has many beneficial properties!
