About our store
The chocolate factory Zaabär was founded in 2007. The creator was inspired by a wide array of spices floating around the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul. Zaabär was created as an extraordinary combination of fine Belgian chocolate and spices from around the world. The idea is to let your taste buds roam free across the world tasting various more traditional or more exotic spices. One of the aspects that nudges Zaabär out of the ordinary, bar the exceptional and unusual combination of chocolate and spices, is the unusual vacuum sealed wrapping in which the chocolates are kept in. This offers a much longer conservation time for all types of chocolate.
The Zaabär factory was redesigned completely in the summer of 2018 and has now become the new Chocolissimo & Zaabär store. This partnership between two Belgian companies offers a tremendous space (600m2) entirely dedicated to chocolate experiences. It serves both as a workshop and a store. The shop invites visitors to explore the world of chocolate through an array of chocolate samples, workshops and so on, so come visit us!
