Eat with your Eyes: Chocolate Knife

Mindestens Swiss Chocolate Knife

I saw these little candies making the rounds as a meme, but I didn’t see them in person until I went to Germany.

It’s a Swiss hazelnut chocolate confection shaped into a pocket knife and wrapped in red foil to look like a Swiss Army Knife.

Mindestens Swiss Chocolate Knife

The Mindestens Swiss Chocolate Knife is a pretty simple little candy. The center is soft gianduia (chocolate hazelnut paste) and covered with milk chocolate. It’s sweet and soft, nothing spectacular, as I’ve had much better gianduia before. But it’s hard to quibble with the design, as both the foil and the molding of the chocolate is so attentive to details. Seek them out if you have a Swiss Army Knife fan in the family.

  1. Hi Cybele,

    I don’t know the Mindestens brand. 

    Have you tried the Swiss Army Knife foil chocolate from Gysi?  Their production is in Bern, Switzerland and you can find them at Cost Plus World Market.  I’m sure you’re readers would like to know if there is a difference.
