As the sister and I transported ourselves into Switzerland, we were blown away by it's emerald toned greenery, mountain tops that are coated with a generous dusting of snow and crystal clear waters that sparkle under the glorious sun rays.
Needless to say, this view was still visible from our hotel room and throughout our walk around Zurich. In contrast to the almighty Swiss scenery, the sister and I braced ourselves for a darker, sinister Swiss trademark, fondly known as chocolate.
Confiserie Sprungli has been operating since 1836 and at one point, was associated to Lindt & Sprungli, which most of us would be familiar with from our local supermarkets. Priding itself as a luxury chocolate brand, it's products can only be found in Switzerland - take note if you are here;)
Located on busy Bahnhofstrasse, the ground floor of the establishment is utilized as a shop whereby customers can freely browse the various selections of artisan chocolates available as well as get takeaways on their famous luxemburgerli (a smaller and lighter version of the French macaron)
Oh and did I mention that there are quite a few unique Lindt chocolate flavours available in the supermarket? We picked an interesting looking kirsch filled edition as gifts for the alcoholic ones. Am not exactly a fan of liquor in my chocolate myself and found this a little too strong to my liking.
