Eat with your Eyes: Callebaut Marbles

Callebaut Marbled Chocolates

Every once in a while at Whole Foods they have interesting bulk chocolate, usually by the fine cheeses. One of the items they were actually sampling (this was about two years ago) were Belgian Chocolate Marbles. They were milk, dark and white chocolate swirled pearls. Well, flash forward a few years and I was at the Fancy Food Show where I finally found out who makes them: Callebaut.

Callebaut recently started moving into selling directly to consumers, previously they did most of their products for other confectioners or as ingredients. So maybe these will show up in stores. They’re fun little nuggets, pretty and made from good quality chocolate - real cocoa butter in the white chocolate and a strong dairy flavor.

  3. Callebaut sold consumer-direct mass produced chocolate bars in Belgium (supermarkets and the like) for years. Excellent chocolate, among the best in that sector of the Belgian marketplace. It was taken over / merged with Jacques, and the same bars can be found under that name. Worth reviewing if you can get your hands on it!
